A day after being carted off the field because of dehydration, Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson said he was back to normal on Wednesday afternoon.

The 23-year-old said it wasn’t the first time he become dehydrated and he made sure to stay hydrated on Wednesday.

Last season Hankerson played in four games as a rookie and totaled 163 yards on 13 catches. He didn’t make an appearance until week seven after a poor training camp. Hankerson said he’s done everything coaches have asked this summer and is working to be on the same page with the entire offense.

“I feel good right now,” said Hankerson. “It’s a little bit different. I’ve been here the whole offseason, I know all the plays and I feel good out there. I’ve been running around all confident and just having fun.”

He said he’s recovered from the hip injury that cut last season short for him. He said it’s not on his mind when he’s playing and contact has not caused him any problems.
