Ashburn, VA ( – The Washington Redskins placed cornerback
DeAngelo Hall and safety Duke Ihenacho on injured reserve Monday.

Hall ruptured his left Achilles tendon in the third quarter of Sunday’s 37-34
loss at Philadelphia. The game was the 70th straight in which he had played.

Ihenacho suffered a fractured heel bone during the 37-34 loss to the Eagles.

The Redskins promoted cornerback Chase Minnifield from the practice squad to
take Hall’s spot on the roster.

The club also terminated the contract of linebacker Darryl Sharpton, who had
been on IR.
