    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."

    That sucks for him, but I can't honestly complain. I don't like a guy who compares himself to Deion Sanders and Champ Bailey before stepping on the playing field. That's why I love Newman so much, he quietly dominates. I want to see him in the Pro Bowl this year, not some rookie phenom in Atlanta.

    I've seen all their preseason games, Hall has been nowhere close to what Newman was last yr...not even close

    The Falcons perenially have one of the worst secondaries in the league. They did try and improve it by drafting Hall, overpaying for a very short (5'9")career backup CB in Jason Webster, and taking a flyer on an aging and slowing Aaron Beasley. Their other options are no-names like Tod McBride, Kevin Mathis, and Allen Rossum. They added quantity but not necessarily quality aside from Hall. At least they got a little younger and more athletic.

    I only had a chance to catch one of his preseason games so far, but I thought he looked pretty good. Either way, tough injury for the Falcons.
