He made the Pro Bowl last season with six interceptions, four of which came in one game against Chicago.

“I don’t know if this defense is built for a corner to go out here and get eight or nine picks,” he said. “It’s built to stop the deep ball and kind of manage the game. Outside linebackers get a lot of sacks. They’re kind of the primary guys in this defense and the strong safety. I don’t get a ton of opportunities.”

Hall has been a force in run defense, though. He is averaging 7.6 tackles per game according to Redskins coaches’ totals, up from 7.0 last season.

Extra points

• Kicker Graham Gano has missed four of his past eight field goal attempts. Coach Mike Shanahan was asked if Gano is fighting for his job this week.

“Yes,” he said. “I think that’s the pressure of everybody having a good game or a bad game. That just goes with the territory.” …

• Strong safety LaRon Landry (Achilles tendon) fully participated in practice, which means he is expected to play Sunday. Linebacker Keyaron Fox (staph infection) also fully participated.

• Linebacker London Fletcher (left ankle) and receiver Niles Paul (sprained toe) did not practice.

• Offensive linemen Trent Williams (left knee), Jammal Brown (left groin), Sean Locklear (ankle), Maurice Hurt (knee) were limited in practice. So were cornerback Josh Wilson (hamstring) and safety DeJon Gomes (knee).
