Rough season ends with a bang for former Marine in NFL


Ahmard Hall's final carry of the 2011 season was a painful one.

For former Marine and current Tennessee Titans fullback Ahmard Hall, 2011 was a year to forget. Unfortunately for Hall, he literally has trouble remembering the very end of his season because of the concussion he sustained in fourth quarter of the Titans’ final game.

Hall, who served in the Corps from 1998-2002, got clocked by Houston linebacker Tim Dobbins on an outside run with less than two minutes to play. Watch the play here. The force caused Hall spin in the air and fumble, with the Texans recovering.

Hall told The Tennessean on Monday that he was “clearing up” but couldn’t remember much about the play or anything after it.

The injury ended a disappointing season for Hall. He started the year by missing the first four games due to a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. Tennessee’s running attack never got on track during the season, finishing 31st in the NFL, despite having former 2,000-yard rusher Chris Johnson in the backfield.  The Titans, playing under a new coach, finished the season 9-7, but missed the playoffs after the tiebreaker went to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Hall, set to become a free agent after finishing his sixth season with Tennessee, told The Tennessean he was not optimistic about re-signing with the Titans.

“I am just going to enjoy my time with my family and try and relax and worry about [a new contract]in March,” Hall said.
