Redskins activate S DeAngelo Hall from PUP list
Redskins activate S DeAngelo Hall from PUP list ASHBURN — DeAngelo Hall was just waiting for the call, and the Washington Redskins really need him at the moment.
The Redskins activated the veteran defensive back off the physically unable to perform list late Friday night, and he could make his season debut Sunday at the Seattle Seahawks. Hall hasn’t played since Week 3 of the 2016 season after tearing the ACL in his right knee, but Washington is glad he’s healthy after having just three safeties on the roster.
“I’m ready,” Hall said earlier this week. “I feel good.”
The Redskins waived offensive tackle Orlando Franklin to make room on the 53-man roster. The decision came so late because they were waiting to see which of their many injured offensive lineman would be able to play.
Hall felt “in limbo” like everyone else but said he was “running around, jumping, doing back flips.” The 33-year-old was concerned about coming back from an Achilles tendon injury suffered two years ago but not this one.
