Arizona Wildcats starting free safety Adam Hall, who suffered a torn ACL during Wednesday’s practice, says the injury won’t cost him the entire 2011 season.
“I do anticipate playing at some point of this year,” Hall said after Saturday’s scrimmage at Arizona Stadium.
As far as when he’ll undergo surgery and the timeline of the rehab … well, that will just have to wait for now.
Head coach Mike Stoops estimated it could be a seventh-month injury, which means the Wildcats would be through October by the time Hall is ready. Hall said he is hoping for a shorter recovery time.
In the meantime, he will be doing a lot of what he did Saturday — yelling encouragement to his fellow defensive backs.
