Leonard Hankerson WR WAS 16 Hrs

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.

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.

Leonard Hankerson (knee, injured reserve) has been diagnosed with a torn ACL in addition to his torn LCL.

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.
