ASHBURN, Va. (CBSDC) — Leonard Hankerson’s season is officially over.

On Thursday, the Washington Redskins announced the wide receiver had been placed on injured reserve for the second time in his three seasons. Hankerson suffered a torn lateral collateral ligament in his left knee during Sunday’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Redskins filled the vacated roster spot by promoting receiver Lance Lewis from the practice squad. Lewis played collegiately at East Carolina, where he set a school-record with 22 receiving touchdowns.

In a related move, the team also signed wide receiver Josh Bellamy to the practice squad. Bellamy has experience returning kicks in the NFL. The 24-year-old Louisville product returned five kickoffs for a total of 101 yards with the Kansas City Chiefs last season. He also recorded a pair of tackles on special teams.
