Pierre Garcon injury: Mike Shanahan says Garcon likely won't return until after bye week

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon will likely not return until after Week 10, according to head coach Mike Shanahan. Garcon has missed five games this season with a ruptured ligament in a toe on his right foot.

Mike Shanahan told the media on Monday that it was likely that Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon would not return until after the team's Week 10 bye. Garcon has been dealing with a right-foot foot injury all season.

It had been reported that the injury would keep Garcon out until after the bye, but Monday was the first time that Shanahan said as much himself.

The injury, which Garcon suffered on an 88-yard touchdown in the season opener, has been diagnosed as a ruptured ligament in the bottom of his second toe. The hope for Washington is that the speedy receiver can heal with rest and not have to undergo surgery.

Playing in just three of Washington's eight games thus far, Garcon has eight catches for 153 yards and one touchdown.

The Redskins have one more game, home against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, before their bye week. Following the bye, Washington hosts the Philadelphia Eagles on Nov. 18.
