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.
