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.”
