RICHMOND — There was DeAngelo Hall, on the ground again.

After he slipped Thursday, the crowd grasped. Hall missed 13 games last season after tearing his Achilles tendon. He tore it again early in the rehabilitation process. So, to see him on the field, then being helped off, during drills against the Houston Texans during morning practice was plenty to produce concern.

Walking slowly afterward, Hall said his Achilles is fine, though his left knee and the left side of his groin are sore from slipping. Hall was coming out of a break during a drill when his feet went out. Trainers helped him to the sidelines, and he sat out the remainder of the Washington Redskins’ practice.

“Definitely groin’s hurting a little bit right now,” Hall said. “Knee’s a little sore. We’ll run some tests and figure out what the issue is. But, I don’t feel like it’s anything too major. But, definitely hurt enough for me to have to limp off.”

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said in the afternoon that Hall is “day-to-day” because of the groin problem.

Cornerbacks David Amerson (sprained AC joint in left shoulder) and Bashaud Breeland (sprained MCL in right knee) are both out. Breeland lost his footing in a spot close to where Hall went down Thursday. It rained overnight in Richmond, but Hall said the field is fine.

“Early in camp, just working through different things,” Hall said. “We’re all kind of slipping coming out of breaks. We aren’t keeping our feet tight.”

Hall said he wasn’t feeling well prior to practice. After several days at camp, his groin had become tighter as he worked back into football shape following his rehabilitation. Hall did not participate in organized team activities or in mini-camp.

“I know we’re kind of banged up, so, I probably would have been out even earlier because I wasn’t feeling that great,” Hall said. “But, when you’re so down on numbers you got to get out there and kind of fight through it, and that’s what I was trying to do when I tweaked it a little more.”
