Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall tore his left Achilles’ tendon for the second time in five weeks, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed. Hall had surgery to repair the tendon on Thursday.

Hall suffered the initial injury against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 21, ending his 11th season in the NFL. He had surgery shortly after and had yet to begin rehab while still recovering.

Hall then re-injured himself at home.

The exact timeline for his recovery following the second surgery remains unclear. It is believed, however, that it could take another six to nine months for him to recover.

Hall, 30, had re-signed with Washington in the offseason, agreeing to a four-year, $17 million deal with $5.65 million guaranteed.
