Redskins injuries: Pierre Garcon and Brandon Meriweather could return

Al Messerschmidt

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon and safety Brandon Meriweather were both limited at Wednesday's practice and could return to the field against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and coach Mike Shanahan said Garcon could return to the lineup when the Redskins play the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Garcon has not played since Week 5 and has only appeared in three games this season after injuring his foot in the season opener. He was later diagnosed with a torn ligament in the second toe of his right foot. Monday was Garcon's first practice in over a month and he was on the practice field again on Wednesday.

Safety Brandon Meriweather was also a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Meriweather has not played all season due to a knee injury, but Shanahan said he looked good and was hopeful he would return against the Eagles.

Wide receiver Santana Moss (head), punter Sav Rocca (knee), long snapper Nick Sundberg (forearm) and cornerback Josh Wilson (shoulder) were all full participants in practice on Wednesday.
