Hall's Status Uncertain

John Hall's status remains uncertain after the Redskins' kicker re-aggravated his quad muscle in Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

"I think our best decision there is that we are going to have to wait it out," head coach Joe Gibbs said on Monday. "If I had to guess, it would make it tough for him to make it back for Monday night."

Hall re-injured the quad on his third field goal attempt, a 19-yarder that would be the game-winner.

Gibbs and director of sports medicine Bubba Tyer both said the injury was not as serious as the one that sidelined Hall for eight games last year.

With the bye week coming up after the Dallas game on Monday night, it's possible that Hall could be ready for the Week 4 game against the Seattle Seahawks at FedExField.

During the preseason, the Redskins had kicker Jeff Chandler compete with Hall, but Hall won the job outright. Chandler, who was 0-for-1 on field goals in the preseason, is currently a free agent.

Meantime, right tackle Jon Jansen was wearing casts on both of his hands on Monday. Within a span of five days, Jansen broke both of his thumbs. The second one, to his right hand, occurred in Sunday's game against the Bears.

The injury occurred late in the game when Jansen tried to stop a linebacker coming in on a blitz.

"Jon played pretty well with the one thumb injury," Gibbs said. "I didn't see it hurting him too much, so hopefully that will be the case with this one."

Jansen's official status for next Monday's game will be determined on Wednesday, when the team releases its weekly injury report.

Defensive tackle Brandon Noble, who tweaked his surgically repaired knee during a practice last week and sat out the Bears game, is expected to visit with a knee specialist on Tuesday.

Cornerback Ryan Clark (knee) and linebacker Chris Clemons (hamstring) are improving and expected to return to practice this week.
