So for those that don’t know, about a month ago while running routes and getting ready for training camp, I tore my Achilles. I have never second guessed what I want for my life. I fell in love with this game at 7 years old and have been obsessed every since. One thing I have learned in the past 2 years is that perception is everything. If you have your mind right, it will always take your life from point A to point B. Even though this is a major setback I’m going to bounce back. I’m determined. I want to thank all the people who have supported my career ever since I stepped on the field. Just know I’m working. #HTTR
This injury will likely cost Hall the entire 2020 season and lead to him being placed on injured reserve in the coming months.
Hall, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Missouri back in 2019. He later agreed to a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Bears as a priority undrafted free agent.
Unfortunately, the Bears cut him loose during the preseason and he was later claimed off waivers by the Buccaneers. From there, he was on and off of the Bucs’ practice squad before the Redskins signed him to their taxi squad in December.
Hall returned to Washington on a futures contract.
During his college career at Missouri, Hall caught 97 passes for 2,016 yards receiving and 16 touchdowns over the course of four seasons and 32 games.
