Leon Hall leaves vs. Saints with sore Achilles

Leon Hall departed from the Bengals' Week 11 game vs. the Saints with an Achilles injury that wasn't believed to be serious.

The Bengals avoided a major scare Sunday vs. the Saints. Stopping Drew Brees and the Saints offense is no easy task, but Cincinnati did a masterful job of it through three quarters. But, the Bengals were without one of their top defensive backs in the fourth quarter.

Cornerback Leon Hall exited the game early in the final quarter with what was called a "sore Achilles", and while the Bengals ruled him out, it's not believed to be anything serious.

This was the same Achilles that Hall tore for the second time in three years in 2013. He is also playing in his first game since suffering a concussion in the Week 9 win over the Jaguars. That concussion led to him missing the week 10 loss to the Browns.
