Hankerson (hamstring) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Ban Goessling of ESPN.com reports. Active Sunday for the first time since Week 7, Hankerson's hamstring issue likely contributed to a reduced snap count -- 43 of the 75 on offense -- but he still reeled in four of seven targets for 36 yards. His lack of activity Wednesday may have been a precaution, but if absences continue to add up this week, owners wouldn't be blamed for worrying about the wideout's availability for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Hankerson (hamstring) marked his return with a touchdown Sunday against the Colts, while also contributing four catches for 36 yards on seven targets. Hankerson was playing for the first time since Week 7, but nonetheless ranked second on the team in receiving yards in his return. The fifth-year receiver out of Miami now has 327 yards and three touchdowns in seven games played, but he and Roddy White will continue to fight over scraps as long as target leader Julio Jones remains healthy.
Hankerson (hamstring) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Colts. Hankerson was limited in practice during the first two days of the week, but logged a full practice Friday to eventually earn himself a "probable" tag for Sunday. He'll suit up for the first time since Week 7, but will likely remain a secondary option to Julio Jones in the passing attack. The Colts are in the league's bottom five in terms of passing yards allowed per game (279.3), so there may just be enough targets to go around, especially if Jones finds himself wrapped up by skilled cover corner Vontae Davis.
Hankerson (hamstring) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Colts. Following limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, Hankerson returned to full participation Friday. Head coach Dan Quinn confirmed that the wideout will suit up for the first time since Week 7, presumably stepping back in as the No. 3 wide receiver. Although No. 2 wideout Roddy White was getting more snaps, Hankerson held a 38-21 advantage in targets through the first six games of the season. Even with Hankerson absent the past few weeks, White's involvement didn't increase.
Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said Hankerson (hamstring) will play in Sunday's game against the Colts, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. The Falcons haven't released their final injury report, but it sounds as if Hankerson may be listed as probable. Regardless, he's set to play for the first time since Week 7 and will likely slot right back in as the No. 3 wide receiver. Despite playing fewer snaps, Hankerson was getting more targets than No. 2 wideout Roddy White prior to the injury.
