Leonard Hankerson WR WAS 8 Days

Hankerson (knee) will not play this preseason and is hopeful of avoiding the Redskins' PUP list to begin this season, ESPN Radio 980 in D.C. reports.

Hankerson says he's about two weeks away from being ready to practice, so he'll certainly be hard-pressed to make Washington's active regular season roster. With the wideout still recovering from knee ligament surgery last fall, players like Ryan Grant and Aldrick Robinson have passed Hankerson on the depth chart, while offseason additions DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts have pushed him back even further. With that in mind, Robinson faces an increasingly tough challenge to earn targets for the Redskins this season.

Hankerson (knee) will soon meet with renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews in hopes of receiving clearance to practice, The Washington Post reports.

Hankerson is still working his way back from surgery last fall to repair ligaments in his knee. Although he's now back to being able to run sprints, Hankerson will remain on the Redskins' PUP list until Dr. Andrews clears him for full activity. With that in mind, the wideout could begin practicing some time next week.

Redskins placed WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Hankerson tore his ACL and LCL in Week 11 and is questionable for the start of the season. He's squarely on the roster bubble. Joining him on the PUP list is OL Maurice Hurt, who reported out of shape for the second year in a row.

Leonard Hankerson (knee) is a candidate to open training camp on active/PUP.

Hankerson is trying to return from Week 11 ACL and LCL tears. At the end of minicamp last month, Hankerson had progressed to sprinting up hills and doing lunges while dragging a weighted sled. He hopes to be cleared for the start of camp, but that seems optimistic after his availability for Week 1 was recently brought into question. Hankerson will simply be competing for a roster spot.

Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) said he has a "couple more months to go" in his rehab.

"Should be good by training camp, but you never know," Hankerson continued. The fourth-year receiver tore his ACL and LCL in Week 11. The Redskins have since added Andre Roberts and DeSean Jackson in free agency, and drafted Ryan Grant in the fourth round. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, HankTime is squarely on the roster bubble. He'll need a strong camp and preseason.

Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson may not be fully recovered from his LCL/ACL surgery until the start of training camp.

With a new coaching staff in D.C., Hankerson will be behind the eight ball when the Redskins open training camp. He's already below DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, and Andre Roberts on the depth chart, while Santana Moss remains a useful spot player, and Ryan Grant was added in the draft. By September, it's quite possible Hankerson will be on the outside looking in at a roster spot.
