Date:

Leonard Hankerson (knee) is active for Week 11.

Hankerson will make his debut Sunday after missing the first nine games with a torn ACL. He should have a limited role on offense and isn't on the fantasy radar. Washington's inactives are WR Santana Moss, QB Kirk Cousins, WR Aldrick Robinson, OT Tyler Polumbus, DE Stephen Bowen, CB Greg Ducre, and OG Spencer Long.
Nov 16 - 11:43 AM

Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) is expected to make his 2014 debut in Sunday's game against the Bucs.

Hankerson obviously isn't going to penetrate the top-three of DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts. But if his knee is right as he comes off an ACL tear, he's a better prospect than Santana Moss, Aldrick Robinson and perhaps Ryan Grant.

Redskins activated WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) from the reserve/PUP list.

HankTime will slot in as the Redskins' No. 4 receiver. He won't come in to fantasy value behind DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts.
Nov 4 - 4:01 PM

The Redskins will activate WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) from the PUP list this week.

The return of Hankerson will give Washington a big receiver capable of helping in the red zone and playing in certain packages. He is unlikely to be a fantasy contributor behind Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson, and Andre Roberts.
Nov 3 - 5:17 PM

Leonard Hankerson (knee, PUP) returned to practice Wednesday.

Hankerson's 21-day clock to be activated begins now. Or he'll spend the year on reserve/PUP. Hankerson is trying to come back from a torn ACL and LCL. He'll probably need all three weeks to make it back. The Redskins have a loaded wide receiver depth chart that already can't find room for Santana Moss.
Oct 15 - 11:24 AM

Redskins placed WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) on reserve/PUP.

Hankerson tore his ACL and LCL in Week 11 of last season. He'll be eligible to return in Week 7, but the fourth-year man is buried on the depth chart. Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts are the clear-cut top three.
Aug 30 - 4:53 PM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden acknowledged Thursday that reserve/PUP is a realistic option for WR Leonard Hankerson (ACL, LCL surgery).

Rookie Ryan Grant's strong training camp has given the Redskins reason to be patient with Hankerson, who underwent surgery last November. At age 25, Hankerson's career has reached a crossroads with a new regime in D.C.
Aug 14 - 11:34 AM

Leonard Hankerson (ACL, LCL) is scheduled to meet with Dr. James Andrews this week.

Andrews will help Hankerson with a target date for his return. For now, the fourth-year wideout remains on active/PUP and is a strong candidate for reserve/PUP to open the season. Hankerson blew out his knee in Week 11 last year.
Aug 11 - 8:29 AM

Leonard Hankerson (knee) is expected to open the season on the reserve/PUP list.

Hankerson was cleared for a running program two weeks ago, and is still working off to the side in gym shorts. With six quality receivers ahead of him on the depth chart, the Redskins can be patient with Hankerson. Washington can stash Hankerson on PUP and activate him after six weeks if they need help.

Aug 5 - 9:19 AM

Leonard Hankerson (knee, active/PUP) has been cleared for a running program.

Hankerson missed Washington's offseason program and doesn't have a set timetable to return. It remains possible that he opens 2014 on reserve/PUP. Hankerson is eight months removed from November ACL surgery.
Jul 25 - 7:48 PM

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.
Jul 23 - 5:22 PM

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.
Jul 8 - 10:23 AM

Leonard Hankerson (ACL, LCL surgery) might not be ready for the start of the season.

After November surgery, Hankerson has a "couple more months to go" in his rehab. Hankerson will almost surely open camp on the active/PUP list. He could even open 2014 on reserve/PUP. The 25-year-old's Dynasty value has become minimal after Washington's offseason signings of DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts.

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 left 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 fifth round. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, HankTime is squarely on the roster bubble. He'll need a strong preseason.
