What's the difference between the reserve/injured list and the injured reserve? Does that mean Hankerson is done for the year?

Yeah hes done for the year , LCL surgery. Hankerson makes me frustrated , hopefully Lewis capitalizes on his chance.

Is it my imagination or have the Redskins made fewer moves than any other team this year? Granted I'm way out here, but it just seems like they've pretty much stayed with what they started with. Which according to their record doesn't show much. I would think they'd be trying something. Is it just a lack of anyone out there that could help? Or what?
