The Washington Redskins activated safety DeAngelo Hall of the physically unable to perform list, the team announced Friday night. Hall joins the Redskins’ 53-man roster, and he is expected to make his season debut Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. To make room for Hall on the roster, Washington waived offensive tackle Orlando Franklin, who signed last Saturday because of the injuries along the offensive line. Hall hasn’t played in a game since Week 3 of the 2016 season, when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. He started this season on the PUP list, forcing Hall to sit out for the first six weeks. Hall became eligible to practice in Week 7, opening a 21-day window for Washington to decide when to activate Hall. “I’m excited, I’m anxious, I’m a lot of different things,” Hall said after Friday’s practice. “I’m just excited to get back out there on the field, and I don’t know how I’m going to contain myself, but I guess I’ll figure out a way.” [Steinberg: Life as an itinerant NFL lineman? ‘It’s been a little wacky’] Hall said his knee feels great after sitting out for nearly 14 months. He said he feels confident in his knee, which was evident when Hall successfully performed a backflip during practice this week.
