#NOvsWAS Injury Report: DeAngelo Hall Questionable


The Redskins have yet to rule anyone out of Sunday's game against the Saints, but 12-year veteran DeAngelo Hall is among three players who are questionable.

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden announced on Friday that DeAngelo Hall (toe), Keenan Robinson (neck/shoulder) and Andre Roberts (ankle) are all questionable for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints at FedExField.

But in a positive sign of the team's overall health entering Sunday's Week 10 game, no one has been ruled out yet. At both Thursday's and Friday's practice, all 53 active players participated in some fashion.

Hall is optimistic that he can play for the first time since going down in the third quarter of the Redskins' Week 3 Thursday Night Football matchup with the New York Giants.

He was limited in practice all week but showed clear signs of improvement.

"He's done some good things," Gruden said on Friday. "He did some things last week in practice. He took some reps out there with the scout team. He's done some things with the No. 1s and he's coming along. He's still playing with a little bit of soreness, but I think he's the type of guy who really wants to get out there. He's one of those veteran guys that has been dying to get back out there. He's done everything he can. He's close to being ready, but we'll find out tomorrow if he feels good enough to play."

Robinson, meanwhile, did not practice on Wednesday but was on the field for Thursday's and Friday's practices.

If the fourth-year University of Texas product -- who has started all eight games this season, recording 56 tackles along with an interception last Sunday -- cannot go, then the team will rely on Will Compton in his absence.

"I think you saw Will Compton step up when Perry [Riley Jr.] was down," Gruden said. "He's continued to play very well for us. He's taken advantage of his repetitions and we talk about that all the time if you're number is called, take advantage of it, and you'll get more opps – and that's what's happened with Will. We're trying to find a way to keep him in the lineup."

Jason Hatcher (knee), meanwhile, is listed as probable for Sunday.

Hatcher has been slowed by a knee injury, as the 33-year-old, like Robinson, did not participate on Wednesday but was limited Thursday and Friday.

On Thursday, Redskins defensive coordinator Joe Barry said that the team regulates Hatcher's workload during the week due to the mileage his body has taken over the years.

"I think any time that you get a player that has as many reps that he's accumulated on his legs and in his body, you've got to be smart with the guy," Barry said. "He always fights it. He wants to practice every day, but definitely the second half of the season, it's probably going to be a common theme. We'll give him the day off on Wednesday and we'll crank it up on Thursday. He did that today. He got after it today, but you've definitely got to have a plan with a guy like that, no question." 

Chris Culliver (knee) is also probable.

He returned to action last Sunday after missing the Redskins' three games before the Bye Week and appeared on 51 of the defense's 80 snaps.

The Redskins are also listing nose tackle Terrance Knighton as questionable for Sunday's game as a precaution after he missed last week's game against the New England Patriots as he battled a migraine headache. Knighton was listed as a full participant in practice all week.

Cornerback Bashaud Breeland (hamstring), linebacker Ryan Kerrigan (hand), center/guard Josh LeRibeus (elbow/shoulder) and running back Chris Thompson (back) were all full participants during the practice week and are also listed as probable for Sunday's game.
