Hankerson: "I'm ready"

Leonard Hankerson said his recovery from hip surgery remains on target and that hes anxiously awaiting his return to the field next week at Redskins Park.

Right now, Im feeling pretty good, the second-year receiver said at Brian Orakpos youth football camp in Fairfax. Ive been in the training room this whole off-season, working out, working on my hip, doing little things to get me prepared for next Wednesday.

Veterans report to Ashburn on Wednesday; the first practice of training camp is Thursday.

I cant wait to get out there and get going and see how it goes for me, added Hankerson, who, if healthy, could be another weapon for an improved receiving corps that includes veterans Pierre Garcon, Josh Morgan and Santana Moss.

Hankerson showed flashes of promise last season he had eight receptions for 108 yards at Miami in November before a torn labrum in his right hip ended his season. In four games, the 23-year old notched 13 catches for 163 yards and no touchdowns.

Hankerson underwent surgery in February, but was withheld from last months mini camp for precautionary reasons.

The surgery impacted me a little bit because I missed all of the off-season program with my teammates, Hankerson said. I wanted to be out there working with them guys, but I couldnt because of the injury. I was a little disappointed, but it didnt stop me. I kept working, stayed focused doing the little things I had to get done. Im ready.

Hankerson said he has yet to be on the receiving end of a pass from rookie Robert Griffin III. But the wait, he added with a smile, will end soon enough.

Ive talked to him a couple of times, Hankerson said. Hes there now, so Im going to get back over there and go workout with him. Were going to have a lot of fun.

Redskins need to stop Cowboys' Cole Beasley to win in Week 7

When the Redskins take on the Cowboys on Sunday in Week 7, there's one player NBC Sports Washington's resident GM Charley Casserly says they need to contain in this week's "Matchup to Watch."

The player: Wide receiver Cole Beasley

The comparison: Randall Cobb (Packers), Jamison Crowder (Redskins)

Who will cover him: Casserly's guess? Fabian Moreau

The key for the Redskins: Get physical with him. "Jam Beasley off the line of scrimmage," Casserly says, "reroute him and be physical with him."

Redskins vs. Cowboys Week 7: Time, TV channel, Live Stream, How to Watch

Most Redskins fans wait all year for this particular Sunday, the Cowboys are coming to Fed Ex Field

The problem is the Redskins have not faired well in this rivalry over the last few years. The Cowboys have won four straight and eight of 10 against the 'Skins. Dallas has struggled away from Jerry's World this season, going 0-3 in road games. 

The Cowboys offense exploded against the Jacksonville Jaguars, one of the top defenses in the NFL. Ezekial Elliott rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown. Dak Prescott was effective through the air and on the ground, rushing for 82 yards and touchdown and throwing for a pair of scores. Prescott connected with Cole Beasley nine times for 101 yards and both touchdowns.

Dallas' offense isn't cured yet. The Cowboys still remain 29th in the NFL in total yards per game.

The Cowboys strength is on defense. Dallas is second in the league in points allowed per game (17.2) and fourth in yards allowed per game (315.2). Demarcus Lawrence can wreak havoc coming off the edge. He has 5.5 sacks this season. The Cowboys MLBs of Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch have been very active this year, both ranking in the top 10 in tackles. 

That's what the Redskins have to deal with in Week 7.
