Hall out a month

Toby Hall finally heard from the doctor who decided that maybe this was important enough to leave the NFL combine to take a look at his MRI.

The verdict? Torn labrum and an "unstable right shoulder."

He'll remain in camp and go through a separate rehab. Lintner read Hall’s MRI exam, and it doesn’t appear the veteran catcher can cause further damage to the shoulder.

“You can’t do anymore damage, but it’s one of those things where it’s a good feeling to be here being an Astro,” he said. “I want to go out there. The opportunity is there so I’m going to go see how it unfolds.”

If a doctor told me that I was so jacked up I "couldn't do anymore damage," I wouldn't have much in the way of good feelings.
