DeAngelo Hall re-tore his Achilles while getting pizza in his kitchen
Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall tore his Achilles against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3, and he has been working to rehab the injury in order to be ready for training camp next summer. After losing a battle with a slice of pizza, Hall’s recovery is going to take a bit longer than expected.
Redskins coach Jay Gruden told reporters on Friday that Hall re-tore his Achilles earlier this week while he was in his kitchen getting a slice of pizza. You can’t make this stuff up, right?
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network speculates that Hall’s setback will delay his recovery time by about a month and a half, which means he still should be able to get back in time for training camp.
As we have learned over the past year, pizza can be very dangerous for professional football players. Remember what happened to former Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson that kept him out multiple weeks? Pizza is no joke.
