Although Hall is unable to join his teammates between the white lines of the practice court, the electric second-year defenseman is working on his own with trainers on the sidelines. Jets coach Robert Saleh, who wouldn’t commit to Hall being ready until Week 1, says the team plans to go slow with the talented linebacker.
“He looks really good, he looks strong, he’s in really good shape. Obviously we’ll make good on him and make sure we play him slow. When it’s ready, it’s ready,” said Saleh. “The only thing with these ACLs, you don’t want to go too fast and you don’t want to go too slow. There is a balancing act … trusting our coaches and our doctors.”
The club hopes Hall will be ready for the Week 1 matchup against the Bills Monday Night Football.
“At the moment, knock on wood – things are going really well. We have to look at the run and the cut, but he is trending very well in that direction,” Saleh added.
