No announcement by NFL yet on Hall’s fine

The NFL won’t make an announcement Friday regarding disciplinary action against Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall, according to a league spokesman.

Hall remains eligible to play in Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers at FedEx Field.

Two people familiar with the case said late Thursday that Hall would be fined, but not suspended, for the incident with an official late in last Sunday’s loss at Pittsburgh that led to Hall’s ejection. Hall also is to be warned that future misconduct could lead to a suspension, they said.

A person with knowledge of the case said Friday that nothing had changed and Hall still is to be fined but not suspended. The league’s review simply was not completed in time for an announcement to be made Friday, that person said, calling it merely part of the “administrative process.”

The amount that Hall is to be fined is not known.

Hall said earlier Friday at Redskins Park that he hadn’t received official word from the league of his penalty.

“I haven’t got a FedEx,” Hall said in the locker room following the Redskins’ practice. “I haven’t gotten anything. Bruce [Allen, the Redskins’ general manager] hasn’t gotten anything.”

Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan also said after the team’s practice that he’d received no official word from the league.

Hall yelled and gestured at head linesman Dana McKenzie. Hall said later he was upset that no penalty was called on Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders for a tie-up between the two after a play. Hall told 106.7 The Fan in a radio interview Tuesday that the official should share the blame for the episode.

Hall had said he wanted to meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to give his side of the story.

The Redskins have their bye week after they play the Panthers.
