Deiondre Hall could come back in the next few weeks.

It looks like one of the Chicago Bears’ injured players may make his way back to the playing field in the next few weeks. Safety Deiondre Hall has returned to practice and his 21-day window to practice is officially open.

The Bears have 21 days to see how Hall responds to practice. If he does well, the Bears will have the opportunity to designate him to return from the IR and activate him. If that window closes and the Bears do not activate Hall, he will be shut down for the season.

Hall was a rookie last season after the Bears selected him in the fourth round out of Northern Iowa. Hall played CB as a rookie and showed some ability in coverage last year in limited opportunities before he struggled with injuries.

This season, the Bears converted Hall to safety and wanted him to compete for a starting position, but again, Hall had injury issues in August and was placed on IR to start the season. Since Hall’s injury, Adrian Amos has emerged as has rookie Eddie Jackson, so while the Bears starting safeties appear to be set for the remainder of the season, the depth behind Jackson and Amos is weak. If Hall plays well he could earn playing time spelling the two safeties or if one of them misses time due to injury.

While this isn’t the biggest news in the world, the Bears are definitely at the point where they are looking ahead to 2018 and seeing if Hall has what it takes to be a legitimate contributor for this secondary over the last few games of the season.
