Hankerson had 30 catches for 375 yards and three touchdowns this season and had claimed the number two receiver position alongside of Pierre Garcon. The injury means that he will end a second season of his career on the injured reserve. As a rookie, Hankerson missed a portion of the season after tearing a labrum in his hip in Week 10. Josh Morgan will start in Hankerson’s place according to head coach Mike Shanahan.

Mike Shanahan said at his press conference today that Hankerson had both his ACL and LCL worked on, his recovery time will be 7-9 months.
