ASHBURN — Don’t assume just because Redskins safety DeAngelo Hall is 33 that he would rather not participate in practice.
“I want to go out there and get this work,” Hall said. “It’s contagious watching those guys compete. I get more hyped watching than when I’m out there competing. I can’t wait to get back out there.”
But Hall is still rehabbing from a torn ACL, which occurred in Week 3 last year against the New York Giants. In speaking to reporters Tuesday, Hall said he’ll be back ‘sometime’ during the Redskins’ training camp.
The question is whether that’s early or later.
“I don’t know,” Hall said. “It depends. It depends how my body progresses.”
Hall had surgery to repair his right knee in October. As part of the rehab process, Hall has been limited during this offseason. He’ll often watch practice on the sidelines and he’s picking up a new scheme under defensive coordinator Greg Manusky.
“I’m not 100 percent obviously,” Hall said. “But I feel good. I’m able to move, run, cut, do everything that I normally do. But it’s just a little bit more of a controlled environment. I’ll continue to work towards being able to make sudden moves and keep getting strong, and strengthening everything around my knee.”
Redskins training camp begins in Richmond on July 27 and runs until Aug. 13.
