Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson tried to recover from a hip injury that ended his 2011 season prematurely without getting surgery but it was not to be. On Saturday he tweeted the following (@Hanktime85):
Ok well the bad news is, I got surgery on Tuesday, and the good news is, I'll be ready 2 go b4 camp start
The news has to be considered something of a setback as he will be unable to participate in OTA's and minicamp. The NFL lockout wiped those out last year and they were expected to help his development along this year.
