• Rookie receiver Leonard Hankerson is eager to move forward from the mess that followed his first NFL play last week. John Beck threw an interception after expecting Hankerson to run a different route than he actually did. Things unraveled afterward when Hankerson engaged critical fans on Twitter.

“I shouldn’t have even tried to entertain the fans by talking [on Twitter] about that play,” he said. “It wasn’t no fun.”

• The Redskins did not promote sixth-round rookie running back Evan Royster from the practice squad to fill the roster spot vacated by injured starter Tim Hightower. Instead, they signed interior offensive lineman Jonathan Compas and tight end Dominique Byrd to the 53-man roster.

“It’s not frustrating,” Royster said. “I’m just going about it like I go about every week. Every week I’ve been ready to play. That’s not saying I’m going to, but I’m still ready to. That’s kind of what being in this position kind of holds for you.”

• The Redskins signed running back Tristan Davis to the practice squad and released practice squad guard John Malecki.
