Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall will have another surgery on his left Achilles after re-tearing the tendon this week, reports’s Adam Schefter.

According to Redskins head coach Jay Gruden, Hall was injured in his kitchen while getting pizza.

Hall originally tore his Achilles in the second quarter of Washington’s 37-34 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 21 and had surgery a few days later. He had 16 total tackles and one forced fumble this season.

Rookie cornerback Bashaud Breeland replaced Hall in the lineup and has 26 total tackles, two forced fumbles and one interception on the season.

Last year, Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson -- who has since retired -- suffered a broken arm in his car while trying to stop a pizza from falling. 

Hall, 30, had started every game the last four seasons for Washington. In 11 NFL seasons since being drafted in the first round by the Atlanta Falcons in 2004, Hall has 43 interceptions, 10 forced fumbles, and 12 fumble recoveries.

In February, Hall signed a four-year, $17 million contract to stay with the Redskins. He is set to make $1.25 million this year and $4 million next season.

The Redskins (3-5) have won two games in a row and face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
