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.
