Leonard Hankerson activated from PUP list

The jury is out on the quarterbacks in Washington and they’ll have another wide receiver available to help them make their case once they return from their bye week.

The Redskins announced Tuesday that they have activated Leonard Hankerson from the Physically Unable to Perform list. Hankerson tore his ACL last November and wasn’t able to get onto the practice field before the end of training camp, which led to his placement on the PUP list.

Hankerson, a 2011 third-round pick, caught 30 passes for 375 yards and three touchdowns before being injured last season. Hankerson started seven of the 10 games he played in 2013, but the additions of DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts mean he’ll be coming back to a very different depth chart than the one he was on last year. Ryan Grant has seen the fourth-most snaps among receivers this season, but that hasn’t amounted to much playing time.

The Redskins waived cornerback Chase Minnifield to make room for Hankerson on the roster.
