RICHMOND, Va. -- Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who was carted off the field the day before following a hard fall on his back, returned to practice Monday.
Hall was able to participate in a limited capacity.
"They didn't want me to go out here, but I was like, 'Nah, I'm going to go out here and do some individual drills, move around a little bit,'" Hall said after practice. "A little bit of pain, but night and day difference from yesterday."
Hall hopes to play next Monday night against the Cleveland Browns.
"If my body permits it, I'll definitely be out there," Hall said. "I'm not a guy who likes to sit on the side and watch."
Hall fell on his back after being flipped over in the air and, while on the sideline, his back locked up. He was driven to the locker room on a cart. A team spokesperson said it was a bruised back.
Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that Hall could have walked off on his own.
"DeAngelo did a somersault and landed on his back and bruised his back," Gruden said. "He is walking around a little bit better today, just a little sore. I don't imagine (his recovery time) being very long."
The 30-year old Hall is Washington's starting left cornerback.
"I tried to keep going but couldn't keep going," Hall said Monday. "It got to the point where my back locked up so bad I couldn't even walk. So I got carted off, assisted (into the facility). I was in a wheelchair. Later in the day I was on crutches and then this morning I was walking. So it's been a rough 12 hours or so. But I feel good."
