Leonard Hankerson (knee, injured reserve) is expected to be sidelined 7-9 months as he recovers from surgery to his left ACL and LCL.
It puts HankTime's return date somewhere between July and September, meaning he's not a lock to be ready for training camp. Hankerson was initially believed to be dealing with "only" a torn LCL before his Thursday operation also turned up damage to his ACL. HankTime will be a candidate to begin 2014 on the reserve/PUP list, but that's certainly not a given. He could easily be ready for Week 1.

Redskins placed WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.
Hankerson made major strides in his third NFL season, taking the starting "Z" receiver job away from Josh Morgan early on and never looking back. Through nine games, he was on pace to finish with 51 catches for 657 yards with five touchdowns. All those numbers would have been career-highs. Hankerson will be back for the final year of his rookie deal in 2014 and will be the favorite to start opposite Pierre Garcon once again. The rehab stemming from his LCL repair surgery won't be as complex as an ACL repair.

Leonard Hankerson needs surgery to repair the LCL in his left knee and is done for the season.
This was the expected outcome. Hankerson likely has a torn LCL. He went down in the first quarter of last Sunday's loss to the Eagles. HankTime had his best game of the season in Week 1, catching five passes for 80 yards and two touchdowns in garbage time. He caught a total of 30 passes for 375 yards and three touchdowns in his third season. Hankerson has a ton of ability but has battled drops and long bouts of inconsistency as a pro. He has one more year left on his rookie deal.

Leonard Hankerson may need surgery to repair his left LCL injury.
The Redskins appear to be still waiting for the results of an MRI. HankTime could need a procedure if the LCL shows up as torn. The Redskins could then turn to Aldrick Robinson or Santana Moss as a starter opposite Pierre Garcon. Josh Morgan seems to have complained his way out of the picture.

Leonard Hankerson sustained a possible LCL injury in Sunday's loss at Philadelphia.
Hankerson went down in the first quarter and never returned. LCL injuries are far less severe than ACL or PCL issues, but it's still a week-to-week situation. Aldrick Robinson saw a bump in snaps and produced a 2/60/1 line after Hankerson left Sunday.

Leonard Hankerson left Sunday's Week 11 game at Philadelphia in the first quarter with a knee injury.
Hankerson was trying to escape the grasp of Connor Barwin and ended up going down awkwardly. The Redskins Z receiver has been deemed doubtful to return. With Josh Morgan a healthy scratch and Jordan Reed being evaluated for a concussion, the Redskins pass offense is running on fumes.

Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) is probable for Week 11.
Hankerson played through his hamstring injury last Thursday and was a full participant in practice this week. He's currently averaging 3.2 catches for 41.1 yards per game and is nothing more than a WR5 in re-draft leagues.
