Leon Hall DB CIN 6 Days

Bengals activated RCB Leon Hall (Achilles') from the active/PUP list.

The Bengals boasted Hall was ahead of schedule all offseason, and apparently weren't exaggerating. Provided he stays healthy, Hall will start opposite first-rounder Darqueze Dennard.

Bengals RCB Leon Hall (PUP, Achilles') is expected to be activated within the week.

Coach Marvin Lewis has raved about Hall's recovery all offseason, and kept at it this week. Hall is now nine months removed from the injury that ended his 2013. With tears to both Achilles' now on his r‚sum‚ heading into his age-29 campaign, Hall will be a question mark this season.

Coach Marvin Lewis said RCB Leon Hall (Achilles') has had an "amazing" recovery.

Leon Hall DB CIN 3 Months

Benglas RCB Leon Hall (Achilles') remains on track to be ready for the start of training camp.

Hall is ahead of schedule, just as he was two years ago when he tore his left Achilles'. Hall is entering his age-30 season and has now suffered two serious lower-body injuries. The Bengals should be in the market for cornerback help early in this weekend's draft. Hall will be ready to roll for Week 1.

Bengals RCB Leon Hall has progressed to performing "all football drills" as he continues to rehab his second Achilles' tear in three years.

Hall's latest Achilles' tear occurred in Week 7 last season. He made a highly impressive recovery from the first tear, and appears ahead of schedule again. Hall is entering his age-30 season, however, and it's possible he'll lose some quick-twitch lower-body movement ability. The Bengals should be in the mix for cornerbacks in May's draft, quite possibly in the first round.

Bengals RCB Leon Hall (Achilles') is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Hall tore his Achilles' in Week 7, his second Achilles' tear in three seasons. While asking Hall to be ready for camp may be a stretch, he should be full-go by Week 1. Hall is set to count $8.7 million against the 2014 cap but is fully expected to be back in Cincinnati. Look for the Bengals to select a corner in May's draft, considering Cincy is getting awfully old at the position.

Bengals placed CB Leon Hall on injured reserve with a torn Achilles' tendon, ending his season.

Going on 29, Hall's second Achilles' tear in three years has his career in jeopardy. Hall is signed through 2015, but has no guaranteed money remaining on his contract. If he's not released this offseason, he'll have to be open to restructuring. Hall is facing a daunting road back.

Bengals declared CB Leon Hall, RB Rex Burkhead, CB Chris Lewis-Harris, DT Devon Still, G/C Trevor Robinson, T Tanner Hawkinson, and WR Ryan Whalen inactive for Week 8 against the Jets.

Hall tore his Achilles' last week and is expected to be placed on injured reserve shortly. Dre Kirkpatrick will handle slot corner duties in Hall's absence. Still has an elbow injury. Marvin Jones (shoulder, probable) is active.

Bengals RCB Leon Hall is done for the season with a torn Achilles' tendon.

It's Hall's second Achilles' tear in as many seasons, and strips Cincinnati of its best cornerback. Although Hall had been up and down early in the season, his versatility was critical in Mike Zimmer's scheme with the ability to cover both right cornerback and the slot. He'll likely have surgery within the next few days. Look for Pacman Jones to finish the season at the Bengals' starting RCB, opposite aging LCB Terence Newman.

Bengals CB Leon Hall was forced from Sunday's Week 7 game against the Lions with an Achilles' injury and has been ruled out.

Hall was covering Calvin Johnson on an end-zone fade pass when he was injured. He was in noticeable pain but ended up walking off under his own power after staying on the ground for about half a minute. Hall tore his Achilles' once already in 2011. He may have gotten it stepped on in this one. Terence Newman and Pacman Jones will hold down the cornerback spots in Hall's absence.
