Leonard Hankerson Injury Update: Washington Redskins' WR Has Torn Labrum, Heads To Injured Reserve

Leonard Hankerson's season is over, the Washington Redskins announced Monday, due to a torn labrum in his right hip. The rookie wide receiver suffered the injury during his breakout performance against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday afternoon. Hankerson, making his second start of the season for the injured Santana Moss, caught eight passes for 106 yards. That's no mean feat, as no other Redskins receiver had more than three receptions or 37 yards in that 20-9 loss.

Hankerson's season ends with the former Miami Hurricane recording 13 receptions for 163 yards and no scores. The Redskins made him the No. 79 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. With Moss and Hankerson out, Washington's top receiving options are tight end Fred Davis and wideout Jabar Gaffney. Niles Paul is another injured Washington wide receiver.

Redskins Vs. Dolphins: Rex Grossman To Start At QB Over John Beck, Report Says

For the second time in 2011, the Washington Redskins have made a quarterback change. Rex Grossman, who was benched after throwing four interceptions in a Week 6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, will replace John Beck as the Redskins' starting quarterback for their game against the Miami Dolphins, according to a report by NFL Network's Jason La Canfora.

The noise of this possibly happening emerged on Saturday with a report that Beck and Grossman were splitting the first-team reps in practice. Earlier in the week, coach Mike Shanahan had pledged his support for Beck. Now, he has evidently changed his mind.

The move comes after Beck only led the Redskins on one drive that ended in a touchdown in the last two games. Grossman certainly made his fair share of mistakes, but the Redskins were still 3-2 when he was replaced. Perhaps Shanahan decided that Beck had not proven enough with his opportunity.
