Snap counts: Hankerson starts again

Hankerson-vs.-Eages

Here’s a look at who played how much against the Lions (snap counts via Pro Football Focus):

Offense 80 snaps

QB/O-line: Robert Griffin III, Trent Williams, Kory Lichtensteiger, Will Montgomery, Chris Chester, Tyler Polumbus all played 80

This group is now 219/219 for the season

Wide receivers: Pierre Garçon 71, Leonard Hankerson 56, Santana Moss 44, Josh Morgan 25, Aldrick Robinson 11

That’s a lot of snaps for Hankerson, who again started over Morgan. Robinson had two big “catches”, one of which was nullified by a penalty and the other one that he couldn’t quite hold on to in the end zone

Tight ends: Jordan Reed 32, Logan Paulsen 56, Niles Paul 7

With Davis out, the Redskins probably planned to play Reed more but a bruised quad kept him out for most of the second half.

Running backs: Alfred Morris 43, Roy Helu Jr. 36, Darrel Young 19

If you throw a lot of passes, that means more snaps for Helu and fewer for Young.

Defense 74 snaps

Defensive line: Barry Cofield 54 Stephen Bowen 55, Kedric Golston 57, Phillip Merling 18, Nick Barnett 8, Chris Neild 13

Neild was active instead of Chris Baker and played about the same number of snaps.

Linebacker: Ryan Kerrigan 67, Perry Riley 67, Brian Orakpo 64, London Fletcher 59, Nick Barnett 8, Darryl Tapp 3,

Barnett filled in some snaps for Fletcher

Defensive back: Josh Wilson, DeAngelo Hall, Brandon Meriweather, David Amerson all played 67, E. J. Biggers 4

Meriweather played his first complete game since Week 5 of the 2011 season. Kind of an odd alignment, using 3 CB’s and 1 S the entire game with the exception of Biggers being in for four plays.

    Definitely want to see more of Hankerson! He is a great player and remember last year when he had those 2 big TD’s when Cousins was in for RG3 against the Browns.. Hankerson can play if you give the guy a chance. I have strong faith in him and when picking between him or J. Morgan, I would have to go with Hankerson. Skins should target him more, and get him involved in the offense. Also he is great at slants and running open in the flats. Go Hankerson!

    Hail to the redskins.
