There's several ways to celebrate good news. Perhaps you can share it through social media or treat yourself to a nice meal, or you can do a backflip to showcase your excitement.

That latter is exactly what Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall did after receiving a positive prognosis during a recent doctor's visit.

Hall, of course, suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon Week 3 last season then reinjured it again just a few weeks later.

During a recent interview with, the three-time Pro Bowler said that whenever he gets full clearance to return to the field, you're going to see the same player who is among the best at his position.

"I'm focused, man," he said. "I'm ready to go, ready to compete, ready to prove everyone wrong who thinks I can't come back."

During the 2013 season, arguably the best of his career, Hall recorded a career-high three touchdowns en route to being named the Sam Huff Redskins Defensive Player of the Year.

He believes he can be that same game changer again once he's fully healthy.

"Everybody was saying that was probably the best of my career at 10 years in," he said. "I still feel like I got that, and in 2014 I was off to a good start and to get hurt Week 3, was definitely frustrating, but I still feel like I can still do it. I know I can still play, I know I still want to play, I know there's still a lot of plays out there for me to make – make those plays, help our team win games and eventually a Super Bowl."
