Hall suffered a concussion during Saturday's preseason contest against the Jets, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants inked Hall to a contract in early August to bolster their depth at cornerback, but he's worked as a free safety in recent practices due to injuries befalling each player at the position. With his diagnosis known, there's no telling when Hall may be able to return to the field.

During 7-on-7 periods, Hall received extensive work at free safety alongside strong safety Landon Collins in the base and nickel defenses, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Darian Thompson sidelined for at least a week, the Giants need to find a free safety, and the veteran cornerback could be the solution. If Hall were to wind up starting, he'd have some IDP upside.

Hall (back) signed with the Giants on Thursday, Dan Salomone of Giants.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hall spent the entirety of his nine-year career thus far in Cincinnati, where he racked up 470 tackles, 26 interceptions, 112 passes defensed, and five forced fumbles. The 31-year-old underwent back surgery earlier this offseason that may hamper his availability throughout training camp, but he's set to provide a veteran presence in the Giants' secondary while Eli Apple, Janoris Jenkins, and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie lead the cornerback corps.

Hall underwent back surgery earlier in the offseason, NFL.com's Chris Wesseling reports

EDGE Analysis

According to the source, the surgery was to correct an issue with a disc in his back that had nagged him late in 2015. Hall isn't the cover corner he used to be, but can still patrol the slot effectively, as evidenced by yet another above-average coverage grade per ProFootballFocus.com for his performance last season. In fact, there isn't a season in which Hall hasn't graded out as at least above-average. Nonetheless, the Michigan product is entering his 10th season in the league, and had already experienced an Achilles tear in both 2011 and 2013 before aggravating his back. Coupled with the likelihood of him taking his time to land one last pay day, it may still be a while before Hall finds a new home.

Hall (back) is active Sunday against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

After missing practice on Wednesday, Hall put in a limited practice on Thursday before putting in a full session on Friday. On the season, the Bengals right cornerback has 40 tackles to go with two interceptions.

Hall (back) is inactive Sunday against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Hall only saw practice time this week in a limited fashion Friday, so his absence doesn't come as a major surprise. In his stead, Adam Jones (foot) will likely start at cornerback opposite Dre Kirkpatrick (ankle), who is also active for the contest.

Hall (back) is active for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Hall will play, but with only 13 tackles on the year, he has yet to make a huge impact on the stat sheet.

Hall (back) practiced fully Friday, but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Hall's Week 8 status, either way, will be confirmed as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches, but with just 13 tackles in five games to date, the cornerback's fantasy utility is limited to deeper IDP formats.

Hall was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hall was a limited participant in practice in weeks past, but wasn't able to suit up for that week's game, so his practice Wednesday shouldn't indicate his status one way or another. That determination will likely come closer to Friday, so fantasy owners should check back in then.

Hall (back) is inactive Sunday against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Hall will sit for the afternoon contest despite logging limited practices both Thursday and Friday. With Hall on the shelf, look for Adam Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick to serve as the starting cornerbacks.
