Emanuel Hall to miss OTAs due to surgery
Former MU wide receiver Emanuel Hall, now an undrafted free agent, will miss the Chicago Bears’ OTAs due to surgery.
The surgery is similar to the one Trey Burton received for a sports hernia, Bleacher Nation reported.
Hall is expected to be back for training camp after his recovery, which would still make him a prospect for the season-opening roster.
