Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who tore his Achilles tendon last month and underwent surgery to repair it, tore it again this week and will have to redo the surgery, coach Jay Gruden said Friday.
"He had a late night getting some pizza or something in his kitchen and slipped and re-tore it," Gruden said, describing how Hall was injured. "He has to go back in and get it fixed. That just is going to delay his rehab obviously and unfortunately, but hopefully we will still be able to get him back by the start of the season next year. It might impede his progress as far as OTAs and maybe training camp and all that."
The date of the surgery is unknown.
Rookie cornerback Bashaud Breeland has replaced Hall in Washington's lineup and has shined, collecting 26 tackles so far this season. However, Breeland tweaked his knee at the end of Friday's practice and is questionable for Sunday's game.
Hall is signed through 2017 and will count $4.8 million against the salary cap next year. The Redskins, however, would save $2.375 million if they don't feel he can return and subsequently release him.
