Here is what you need to know on this Saturday, November 11, eight days before the Redskins take on the Eagles at FedEx Field.
Hall situation still up in the air
On Friday we got our usual wave of news about NFL players who were fined for various on-field infractions last week. But there was one notable omission from the list.
The NFL said that it still has not yet decided what punishment, if any, will be handed out to DeAngelo Hall for his late-game tirade aimed at a game official against the Steelers on Oct. 28. A league spokesman said that they are still investigating the matter.
Usually the league’s justice system works swiftly in such matters. We can only speculate as to why they won’t rule on the case yet.
It would seem that there is something to Hall’s claim that the game official who was the target of his ire was dishing out some verbal abuse as well. Otherwise, we have a cut and dried case and Hall’s paycheck is anywhere from $25,000 to $50,000 lighter.
It's possible that we will never get an explanation if the league does indeed determine that the official was culpable in the matter. In those cases, the discipline is handled behind closed doors and generally not announced.
Off for bye week
