Diagnosis for Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall remains same; QB Colt McCoy sits with injury

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall visited a specialist and came away with the same diagnosis as the original one: He'll only miss three to four weeks with a sprained right toe, according to Redskins coach Jay Gruden.

In addition, backup quarterback Colt McCoy did not practice Monday with an unspecified injury, leaving Robert Griffin III as the No. 2 quarterback -- for one day at least.

Gruden said that was still the best-case scenario for Hall, who injured his right toe in last Thursday's 32-21 loss to the New York Giants. On Friday, Gruden said Hall might need surgery, but, for now at least, that's not the case. It's good news for the Redskins' secondary, which already lost starting strong safety Duke Ihenacho to a season-ending injury. Nickel corner Justin Rogers remains sidelined with plantar fasciitis -- he worked off to the side with the trainers during practice Monday.

As for McCoy, Gruden said he would not be providing injury information until Wednesday but did acknowledge the quarterback missed practice because he was dealing with an injury. McCoy was at practice Monday but did not participate. McCoy has been the No. 2 quarterback behind Kirk Cousins for the first three games. Griffin has been inactive each game.

Linebacker Perry Riley and guard Josh LeRibeus also worked with the trainers during the portion of Monday's practice open to the media. Riley missed the Giants game, while LeRibeus subbed for guard Shawn Lauvao after Lauvao sprained an ankle and exited in the first half. Lauvao was not at practice Monday and might miss time with the injury. If LeRibeus can't play, the Redskins would have to start either rookie Arie Kouandjio or second-year Spencer Long. Kouandjio spent much of this summer at left guard; Long said he has alternated between sides.

"Since training camp we've felt good about our line depth, and it's going to be tested throughout the season," Gruden said.

Also, receiver DeSean Jackson, who injured his hamstring in the season opener, was not at practice Monday. Gruden said last Friday that Jackson has a chance to play vs. Philadelphia this upcoming Sunday.
