Head Coach Jim Mora said after Tuesday's practice that rookie starting cornerback DeAngelo Hall could potentially miss 6 to10 weeks with a slightly fractured hip he suffered during the August 28 game against the Bengals. But Mora seemed optimistic that Hall could be back in action more quickly than that.
"We’re optimistic that he’s going to be back sooner rather than later, but obviously that’s just going to depend on how he heals," Mora said after the Tuesday practice session.
"It’s called posterior lip acetabular fracture," Mora said. "It’s a little fracture in his hip...we’ve had an MRI, a CT scan, X-rays, and we sent him to a hip specialist out of town."
"But by no means is it season-ending or anything like that," Mora continued. "We’ll get him back eventually, and we’ll adjust as we go. We’re lucky to have guys like Allen Rossum and Aaron Beasley and Kevin Mathis and Tod McBride, who’s been back out here the last two days.There’s nothing you can do about injuries. You’ve just got to keep going."
