Leonard Hankerson Leads Redskins in Receptions
Sep/30/12 10:13 PM Filed in: Leonard Hankerson
Leonard Hankerson caught seven passes for 57 yards in the Redskins' Week 4 win over the Bucs.
Pierre Garcon hogged the X receiver snaps, but Hankerson was promoted as a starter ahead of Josh Morgan on the opposite side. He responded by consistently going over the middle without fear and getting separation on slant routes. Hankerson saw 11 targets, clearly earning the trust of both Robert Griffin and the coaches. He's on pace for only 52 catches, 724 yards and four touchdowns, but his arrow is pointing straight up.
