Redskins Vs. Rams: Josh Morgan Penalty Costs Redskins Late In 4th

The most significant play of the fourth quarter occurred with 1:18 left to play after Josh Morgan caught a pass from Robert Griffin III and advanced to the 29-yard line, picking up 7 yards and leaving the Redskins with a 4th-and-1 situation.

If the Redskins had been able to try a potential game-tying field goal attempt, Billy Cundiff would have had a 46-yard try facing him. But he never got the chance.

That's because after Cortland Finnegan shoved Morgan following the whistle, Morgan fired the ball straight into Finnegan's torso.

The officials called unsportsmanlike conduct on the Redskins receiver, a penalty which pushed the Redskins back to the St. Louis 44. Cundiff's resulting 62-yard try was short, and well to the right.

Two kneel-downs later, the Redskins had suffered their first loss of the season.

Redskins Vs. Rams: Pierre Garcon Not Expected To Play Sunday, According To Report

The Washington Redskins do not expect to have wide receiver Pierre Garcon available to play this Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported.

Garcon hurt his right foot last week during an 88-yard catch-and-run touchdown in the Redskins' 40-32 victory over the New Orleans Saints. For the game, Garcon totaled four catches for 109 yards and touchdown.

The fifth-year wideout has been unable to practice fully all week, sitting out Wednesday's session entirely before getting limited work in the next two days. He had been labeled questionable heading into Sunday's contest at Edward Jones Dome.

Throughout the preseason and up until his injury in Week 1, Garcon had been rookie sensation Robert Griffin III's favorite target. An offseason priority for coach Mike Shanahan, Garcon should give the Redskins the playmaker that it lacked last season.

Redskins Vs. Rams Injury Report: Pierre Garcon 'Very Limited' In Thursday's Practice

The status for Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is still unclear for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams. Garcon participated in practice on Thursday, but was still hampered by a right foot injury suffered in Washington's season opener against the New Orleans Saints.

Head coach Mike Shanahan spoke to reporters following practice about Garcon's injury:

"I really don’t know," Shanahan said when asked about Garçon’s availability. "He was very limited. We’ll have a better idea tomorrow."

Garcon injured his foot while making one of the big plays that the Redskins expected when they brought him over from the Indianapolis Colts in the offseason, an 88-yard touchdown catch from rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. Garcon left the game, but not before tallying 109 yards on four receptions in his Washington debut.

The fifth-year wide receiver out of Mount Union put together a solid stretch of production in the past three seasons. His best year came in 2011, when he caught 70 passes for 947 yards and six touchdowns.
