Leon Hall claimed since the start of offseason workouts that he'll be ready by training camp. When the team released their injury list two hours before practice, Leon Hall wasn't on the Physically Unable to Perform list, meaning that he was going to practice.

And he did.

Hall took the first defense snap of the afternoon, alongside Terence Newman, who filled in for the injured Nate Clements and Dre Kirkpatrick, both of whom are on the PUP or NFI list respectively. And according to Joe Reedy with the Cincinnat Enquirer, Hall took a "good portion" of the defensive snaps during 11-on-11 drills.

When it was all said and done with, Leon Hall said that his Achilles felt good.

"I felt rusty for sure, but my Achilles felt fine," Hall said. "I felt like I was able to move and cut and break and everything how I wanted to. But my technique was definitely rusty, which I’ll get that worked out."

Expect Hall to continue taking it easy, easing into a more common workload as the Bengals and their top cornerback begin feeling comfortable about his recovery.
