The Monday ProCanes report will weed through all the NFL highlights and news to bring you the information you care about the most... what the former University of Miami Hurricanes did during the week prior. In another big week for ProCanes wide receivers, Washington's Leonard Hankerson scored two touchdowns, Cleveland rookie Travis Benjamin caught a 69-yard score, and Andre Johnson delivered an 11-catch, 151-yard performance for AFC South champions Houston.
Leonard Hankerson (Washington Redskins) - two catches, 56 yards, two touchdowns
The Redskins' second-year wide receiver enjoyed a breakout game against Cleveland, recording the first multi-touchdown game of his career in a 38-21 Washington win. Hankerson hauled in his first touchdown of the game on a 54-yard bomb from rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins through triple coverage. His second score of the day, a two-yard catch on a bootleg in the third quarter, helped seal the victory. Hankerson and ProCanes veteran Santana Moss have combined for 73 catches, 1,046 yards and 10 touchdowns for the Washington offense this season.
