Washington Redskins have had many problems to face up to this season, and in the latest tragedy to hit the NFL team, it was revealed on Friday that Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall has suffered a significant setback in his recovery from Achilles surgery.
Hall has experienced many games during his NFL career where he has made multi-interceptions, but multi-Achilles tears is a whole new ball game for the 30-year-old veteran star.
NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport was the one to reveal the bad news for the Redskins, with the cornerback undergoing his second Achilles operation this season on Thursday.
But the re-injury for DeAngelo Hall is not your average injury. It's ultimately pretty ridiculous, with Hall re-injuring his recently repaired Achilles because he slipped in his kitchen while making pizza. These tweets below will likely mirror you're reaction to that information.
Out for longer
It is unclear at this stage how long Hall will be out for, but considering the injury sustained is one the recently repaired Achilles tendon, it's likely that his recovery from the injury will now take substantially longer.
The news couldn't be worse for a Redskins team that has just come through the other end of a terrible run of form.

Just when things were looking up
Four straight defeats for the ball club left them in a very sticky situation with a 1-5 record, but out of nowhere, Washington have won back to back games to revive their season, with the latest one a key win against divisional rival Dallas Cowboys.
But for Redskins' fans that fear this could affect Washington's morale and thus their momentum, there is the comfort of the return of starting quarterback Robert Griffin III this week, with the dual-threat QB revealing on Friday that he is "ready to go".
“I’ve been able to get out there and practice a little bit, and now just getting into the flow – the flow with the guys,” Griffin III said. “And that’s what we want to do: keep this winning streak rolling, and go into the bye feeling good," Griffin revealed to the Redskins website on Friday.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
