Hall Done for Year with ACL Tear
During what was an injury filled game for the Redskins starting veteran safety Deangelo Hall tore his ACL. This is the second time in the last three years that Hall’s season has been cut short due to injury. Whether he will retire or come back will remain to be seen till the offseason, but for now Will Blackmon will be the starter. Blackmon came in the game and did well.
He even forced fumble. Blackmon transitioned from corner to safety this offseason so he lacks experience at the position. However, the level in play shouldn’t drop too much. What will really hurt the skins defense is the leadership they will lose from not having Hall. He was voted captain and has done so much for the organization over the years. The Redskins will need Blackmon and those around him to play well from here on out.
