According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson is a candidate to open training camp on the physically unable to perform list given that he has yet to receive any assurances from his doctors that he will be ready.
Hankerson unfortunately suffered a season-ending knee injury that included tears to his anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments in his knee.
As things stand right now, Hankerson has yet to receive clearance to practice, but he has been rehabbing his surgically repaired knee during the offseason and is reportedly making progress.
Jones mentions that things won’t be handed to Hankerson upon returning to the Redskins practice field as the team has added veterans DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts in free agency to go along with rookies Ryan Grant and Cody Hoffman.
Hankerson, 25, is entering the final year of his rookie contract and will make $645,000 for the 2014 season. Last year, he was limited to appearing in 10 games during which he caught 30 passes for 375 yards and three touchdowns.
