According to Mark Maske of The Washington Post, Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson has had a good camp so far and may get some significant playing time this season.

“It has been a solid training camp for Washington Redskins receiver Leonard Hankerson, a second-year pro who has been one of the team’s more consistent pass-catchers in practices.

“While free-agent addition Josh Morgan has been plagued by a hamstring injury, Hankerson has made a strong bid thus far for a prominent role in the team’s receiver corps alongside Pierre Garcon and Santana Moss,” wrote Maske.

“It always can be a whole lot better,” Hankerson said Monday, per Maske. “But I feel like I’m right there. I feel like I’m getting better. I feel like I’m doing what the coaches ask me. And I feel like I’m taking a step each and every day, and that’s what it’s all about.”

2012 Washington Redskins: Best and Worst Case Scenarios

For the Washington Redskins, their success in the past always hinged on quarterback play and offensive line consistency. And, as an admitted D.C. Homer, there's been nearly nothing positive in those areas for the past decade. As a result, it's been extremely easy to write the Skins off every year. The last time Washington won their division was in 1999 (Family Guy's...

Redskins TE Davis, LT Williams return from bans

Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis and left tackle Trent Williams are set to play for the first time since Dec. 4 in Thursday's preseason opener after they were suspended for the final four games of 2011 for failing multiple drug tests. Asked if he's eager to face the Buffalo Bills, Williams chuckled and said, ''More than you know, man. I get tired of blocking...

Washington Redskins 2013 Franchise Tag Candidates

TE Fred Davis Players aren’t franchised two years in a row very often and Davis was franchised this offseason, but he does make sense as an exception. The tight end franchise tag value is still relatively cheap, the cheapest of any non-special teamer (5.4 million in 2012). The Redskins could franchise him for the 2nd time in 2013 at the rate of just 6.48 million, which is much...

NFL preseason will be very big for the Redskins

The organized team meetings, non sanctioned team meetings, and the summer training camp have come and gone for the Washington Redskins. This coming week the 2012 NFL season will come full swing as the first preseason games of the year will commence.  This preseason will be very big for the Redskins as they pull the bubble [...]

Evan Royster will start at running back for the Redskins this week

AP Photo According to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C., Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has indicated that running back Evan Royster will get the start for Thursday’s game against the Bills. This doesn’t come as a surprise, since Royster has been getting the first team reps throughout training camp so far.

Washington Redskins fan RevRedskin will put the fear of God in you (video)

 Sure, this loudmouthed character who goes by the moniker “RevRedskin” technically is not a man of the cloth in a traditional sense — although I love his robed garb — but few preachers ever have put the fear of God in me than this maniac has by way of this disturbing video where he espouses [...]

RGIII, Mario set to make their preseason debuts

Looking forward to making his preseason debut, Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III revealed he has one apprehension. Griffin joked he would prefer not getting hit on Thursday, when the Redskins travel to play the Buffalo Bills. Good luck with that, because the Bills high-priced, retooled Mario Williams-led defensive line has a much different intention in making...

Shanahan not concerned by OL injuries - yet

The Redskins are expected to take the field for Thursday's preseason opener at Buffalo minus three starters along the offensive line, but offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said he's not concerned about those injuries at this point in training camp. "It's part of camp. Yeah, we have three starters who aren't practicing right now. I'm hoping we'll get...

Six things to watch for in Redskins at Bills; five do not involve Robert Griffin III

I'm ready for some football. Even though Redskins at Bills is a pretend game, it beats TV replays of games played between teams that are not the Washington Redskins. Robert Griffin III is the most compelling personality of the rookie class. We have been comparing him to big signings of Redskins lore, but interest in this guy is beyond that. I don't believe that jersey sales...

NFL pre-season football: uglier than our prom dates

Rookie Robert Griffin III makes his debut for the Washington Redskins tonight vs. the Buffalo Bills: the same team that humiliated the Washington offense in 2011, proving the need to chase RGIII. Here's a look at the ugly statistical side of Thursday's pre-season slate.

IT’S TIME!

…to start the preseason. Tonight the Bills are hosting Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins in their first preseason game at 7 pm. The Buddy Nixon crew will be at the game doing our best to pump up what will be an understandably lukewarm preseason crowd. But don’t let 20,000 empty seats dampen your spirits, as the NFL regular season is just weeks away. We’re going...
