Max Hall Injury Update: Shoulder Dislocation Initial Diagnosis

Max Hall left practice on Monday holding his left arm after he fell with his hand outstretched. Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed on Tuesday that Hall suffered a should subluxation which is typically defined as a temporary and partial dislocation of the joint.

Hall suffered a similar injury in 2010 during a game against the St. Louis Rams. Hall was placed on the injured reserve as a result of that injury and didn't play again that season. According to Whisenhunt, Hall will return to Phoenix for further evaluation by the team's medical staff.

Hall had fallen to fourth place in the quarterback depth chart behind Kevin Kolb, John Skelton and Richard Bartell so the loss isn't considered a serious blow to the team. Skelton is also currently sidelined from practice with an ankle sprain. His status for the preseason game Saturday against San Diego is questionable.

To avoid going into the game with only two active quarterbacks, Whisenhunt said the team is exploring options to bring in a QB. He would not confirm a previous report that Brodie Croyle would be that guy.
