Redskins' DeAngelo Hall tears Achilles, again

DeAngelo Hall has experienced multi-interception games before. But multi-Achilles tears? That's a different story.

The Washington Redskins cornerback, who tore his Achilles in Week 3 and underwent surgery, tore it again this week and underwent another operation Thursday, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source close to Hall.

On Friday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Hall re-tore his Achilles while in his kitchen getting pizza. (Nate Burleson [must empathize](


Per Rapoport, this setback pushes Hall's recovery time back a month and a half, which shouldn't hinder Hall's ability to be ready for training camp next summer -- if he's still on the Redskins' roster.

Hall is signed through 2017, but Washington could cut the corner and save $2.375 million on the salary cap next season. Rookie Bashaud Breeland has shown promise in taking over Hall's spot, including a stellar game Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys.
