Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan informed the media after practice on Tuesday that wide receiver Leonard Hankerson is fine after suffering a heat-related illness that required him to be carted off the field earlier in the day. The Redskins head coach stated that he was given an IV drip to help replenish his fluids.
After missing the majority of the 2011 season due to injury, the 23-year-old is expected to be the team's No. 2 receiver in 2012.
