Redskins | Hall hoping surgery has him on track

Mon, 19 Jun 2006 05:35:10 -0700

Ryan O'Halloran, of the Washington Times, reports Washington Redskins PK John Hall is hoping surgery in January has him on the right track to a healthy 2006 season. Hall felt his problem was more complex than a quadriceps or groin injury and an evaluation late last season confirmed Hall's suspicions. Hall's surgery repaired muscles that were detached from his pelvis and another muscle he said was "frayed like a rope." Because of those injuries, Hall was overcompensating on his right side, which was a likely source of his hamstring (2004) and quadriceps (2005) ailments. Hall did little kicking during the minicamp, which was by design. During traning camp, Hall will be challenged for his job by PK Tyler Jones. Asked if Hall would have to be markedly outperformed because he's the incumbent, special teams coach Danny Smith said: "Once they're on the field, it's competition and it doesn't really matter where they've come from, who they are or what their credentials are. We'll keep the best guy, period."

Redskins | Jones to join team at offseason workouts Tuesday; will start bid for job

Fri, 19 May 2006 19:34:05 -0700

Jason La Canfora, of the Washington Post, reports Washington Redskins PK Tyler Jones, now kicking in NFL Europe, is expected to join the Redskins for their offseason workouts Tuesday, May 23. Although the odds of making the team appear slim, Jones is eager for a chance to push PK John Hall for the starting job. "I had a pretty good season and I was able to get a lot of good work in and good experience under my belt," Jones said from Amsterdam. Jones has connected on 9 of 12 field goals in NFL Europe and has been perfect on extra points. Jones has excelled on kickoffs, helping Hamburg to have the second-best kickoff coverage in NFL Europe. Kickoffs are of particular importance to the Redskins; head coach Joe Gibbs has said it is unlikely Hall will handle those duties this season.

Leonard Shapiro, of the Washington Post, reports the Washington Redskins received good news concerning PK John Hall (quad).

Hall, who hasn't kicked since the season opener against the Chicago Bears, sought a second opinion on his quad injury. "It's the same thing we've been saying," director of sports medicine Bubba Tyer said. "It's a strained quad. It's getting better. He'll increase his kicking this week. We just need to be cautious in how he practices. Over-kicking would be non-productive. We'll just see how it goes." Hall is most likely OUT for the team's Week 6 game.
