Marvin Hall: Getting back on his feet

Hall (foot) recently posted a video on Twitter of himself going through route-running drills.

Analysis: While the extent of the lower-body injury that prompted Hall to require crutches last November is not certain, the speedster looks just fine at this point. Hall should presumably be good to go if/when training camp opens in late July.

Marvin Hall: Heads to IR

Hall (foot) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

Analysis: Hall injured his foot in Week 12's loss to the Redskins, and he was spotted using crutches following the contest. The 26-year-old's season is over, and the Lions signed Chris Lacy from the practice squad to take over a depth role. Hall finished the campaign with seven catches for 261 yards (37.3 yards per receptions) and a touchdown.

Marvin Hall: Still not practicing

Hall (foot) was listed as a non-participant in Tuesday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: Hall was spotted with crutches and a walking boot following this past Sunday's loss to the Redskins, so a second straight missed practice puts him on track to miss Thursday's matchup against the Bears. The 26-year-old has one more chance to get onto the field Wednesday. If he's unable to go, the Lions may need to promote a practice-squad player since they only have three healthy receivers -- Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola.

Marvin Hall: Estimated as non-participant

Hall (foot) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report.

Analysis: Hall was using crutches and wearing a walking boot after suffering the injury Sunday against the Redskins, so it's not a major surprise to see he wasn't expected to practice Monday. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the 25-year-old appears to be facing long odds to play Thursday given the short week of preparation.

Marvin Hall: Spotted in boot

Hall (foot) was seen sporting crutches and a walking boot on his left foot following Sunday's loss the the Redskins, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Hall left the game in the third quarter, and it's unclear how he picked up the issue. The fact that he was seen in both crutches and a boot is evidence that he could be dealing with a significant injury. It's likely Hall will undergo X-rays or an MRI in the coming days, so expect the team to update his status heading into Week 13's game against the Bears.

Marvin Hall: Done for day

Hall (foot) won't return to Sunday's game against Washington, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: Hall left the game in the third quarter and was quickly ruled out for the remainder of the game. Expect the team to have an update on Hall's status in the coming days, and at least ahead of next week's game against Chicago.

Marvin Hall: Leaves game Sunday

Hall (foot) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Washington.

Analysis: It's unclear how Hall suffered the injury, but he exited the game late in the third quarter. In his stead, Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola are the only healthy receivers on the roster for Week 12.

Marvin Hall: Back in the stat sheet

Hall secured his only target for 39 yards during Sunday's 35-27 loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: It says something when a 39-yard gain decreases your average yards per catch, but that was the reality of Hall's situation while making his sixth catch of the season off a rare dime from backup quarterback Jeff Driskel. However, it seems unlikely that Driskel will consistently be able to find Hall downfield the same way Matthew Stafford (back) was, so there remains little reason to turn to the receiver for fantasy purposes.

Marvin Hall: Hauls in another deep pass

Hall secured his only target for a 58-yard gain during Monday's 23-22 loss to Green Bay.

Analysis: Hall only saw 10 offensive snaps, but he yet again found a way to make a huge play. This time, it was on a 58-yard bomb from Matthew Stafford early on in the first quarter. He didn't see another pass come his way after that, though, which goes to show how reliant Hall is on catching a deep pass in order to provide fantasy value.

Marvin Hall: Makes big play

Hall caught two of three targets for 47 yards during Sunday's 34-30 loss to Kansas City.

Analysis: Although receiver-turned-running-back J.D. McKissic started the game as a receiver, Hall was the third and only wideout in Danny Amendola's (chest) absence to enter the game after Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones. The 26-year-old ultimately logged 29 snaps on offense and made a big play by bringing in a perfectly-placed ball from Matthew Stafford for a 34-yard gain in the fourth quarter. While it's nice for Detroit to know they have a serviceable reserve in Hall, don't expect him to see nearly as much playing time when Amendola returns to form.

Marvin Hall: Set for elevated role

Hall is slated to serve as the Lions' third wide receiver Sunday against the Chiefs with Danny Amendola (chest) absent, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Analysis: That's not to say Hall will handle Amendola's role out of the slot, as he's more of a field stretcher. In 24 appearances between 2017 and 2018 with the Falcons, four of Hall's 12 catches went for 20-plus yards en route to 17.4 YPC. In any case, opportunity knocks for the 26-year-old.

Marvin Hall: Promoted from practice squad

Hall was promoted to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: Hall takes the place of fellow receiver Chris Lacy, who was released in a corresponding move Saturday. The 26-year-old saw action in 24 games for the Falcons between 2017 and 2018, logging 12 catches for 209 yards and two scores.

Marvin Hall: Let go by Bears

The Bears waived Hall on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Hall was seemingly given a shot to step up during camp, but was unable to translate the opportunity into results. The 26-year-old started against Carolina in the Bears' first preseason game, but was only thrown to twice and was unable to reel in either target. Hall also fell short on special teams in Chicago's second preseason contest, losing 15 yards on two punt returns and gaining 16 yards on his only kick return.

August 30, 2019 6:17 PM EST

Marvin Hall: Continues inefficient play

Hall caught one of four targets for four yards and carried one time for an additional two yards during Friday's 32-13 preseason loss against the Giants.

Analysis: Hall finished fourth on the team in targets, but he only managed to bring in one of his looks for a short gain. He also failed to impress on special teams, losing 15 yards on two punt returns and gaining 16 yards on his only kick return. While he's been given a shot to step up during camp, he's failed to translate those results to the field as he's hauled in just one of six looks through two exhibition contests. Many of the team's skill position players should be more involved next Saturday against the Colts, which could leave mere scraps for Hall as he looks to prove himself.

August 16, 2019 9:01 PM EST

Marvin Hall: Gets the start against Carolina

Hall failed catch either of the two passes thrown his way in Chicago's 23-13 loss to the Panthers.

Analysis: With most of the regular skill-position players sitting this one out, Hall found himself in the starting lineup, but the empty box score didn't reflect that. He also started as both the kickoff and punt returner, both being positions he could potentially fill as a backup during the season. However, he'll be in a battle to make the team on a crowded depth chart, and should he make the final 53, it's unlikely that he'll see enough playing time to be a fantasy factor.

Marvin Hall: Getting chance in Chicago

Hall signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Friday.

Analysis: Hall offers the Bears wideout depth behind Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel, Anthony Miller (shoulder) and Cordarrelle Patterson, and projects to make most of his impact on special teams 2019. The 25-year-old posted 10 receptions for 149 yards and one touchdown across 16 games with the Falcons last season.

March 15, 2019 12:59 PM EST

Marvin Hall: Set to hit open market

The Falcons didn't extend a tender to Hall, making him an unrestricted free agent, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Analysis: Hall played a whopping 387 snaps in 2018, recording 10 receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown. His role primarily came on special teams, however, serving as the main punt and kick return man. The Washington product could be an appealing option for a team looking to add a boost to their special teams.

March 13, 2019 8:40 AM EST

Marvin Hall: Scores once in 2018

Hall recorded 149 yards and a touchdown on 10 receptions in 16 games in 2018.

Analysis: Hall saw a much larger role in 2018 than he did as a rookie in 2017, playing 387 snaps on the year. His primary role was on special teams, as he operated the teams kick returner for much of the year and was just a depth receiver on offense. He'll figure to have a similar role if he's on the team again next season, though he could move up the depth chart slightly.

January 22, 2019 11:42 AM EST

Marvin Hall: Records first reception of December

Hall caught one of three targets, picking up 10 receiving yards during Sunday's 40-14 win against the Cardinals.

Analysis: The second-year wideout snapped a four-game catchless streak, working in a 10-yard reception against Pro Bowler Budda Baker during the latter stages of the third quarter, as the Falcons put up 220 yards through the air on Arizona's defense No. 5 pass defense. As a returner, Hall chalked up 10 yards in bringing back an Andy Lee punt, but the gain was erased by a holding penalty on rookie Russell Gage. He's only collected 17 targets on the season, but most of his involvement has come by way of special teams, where he's returned 21 kickoffs for 25.0 yards per attempt. In Week 16, he'll be lining up against a Panthers kick coverage unit that's surrendered 23.1 yards per return in 2018 (ranks 17th).

December 17, 2018 7:47 PM EST

Marvin Hall: Targeted in loss

Hall was unable to haul in his lone target during Sunday's 34-20 loss to Green Bay.

Analysis: The townward trend continues in Atlanta as the team has failed to top 20 points in five consecutive games, all losses. Hall is feeling the effects. After a three-catch Week 7, Hall has snagged just one of five targets for 12 yards. It doesn't get much easier. Sunday brings an Arizona defense ranked in the top 5 in the league in receiving yards per game, 231 total.
