Cornerback DeAngelo Hall missed a second straight day of practice with a sprained big toe, and despite a desire to play in Thursday’s preseason game against Detroit, his status likely will not be determined until the morning of the game.
If the soreness and swelling in the 12th-year veteran's toe subsides, he will play in Thursday’s second preseason game, at FedEx Field against Detroit.
A team spokesman said after practice that Hall was being evaluated further and the extent of the damage was unknown at that time.
Some veterans approach the preseason with a good degree of wariness because of the risk of sustaining an injury in a meaningless game. However, Hall said this year, that’s not the case for him.
