The Washington Redskins are already banged up as is and will be without two, perhaps three, more key players on Sunday when the team takes on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field.

Washington will be without one of their prized offseason acquisitions in wide receiver Pierre Garcon, who will miss his third straight game because of a foot injury. The Redskins have also ruled safety Brandon Meriweather out for the game, because of a knee injury.

The injury concerns do not stop there for Mike Shanahan's defense, as the team has listed London Fletcher (hamstring/head) as questionable, putting the linebacker's streak of 231 consecutive games played in jeopardy.

The Redskisn have listed cornerbacks Cedric Griffin (hamstring), David Jones (Achilles) and Josh Wilson (shoulder) as probable for the game. Joining them as probable on the injury report are punter Sav Rocca (right knee), defensive end Doug Worthington (calf) and fullback Darrel Young (hamstring).

Mike Tomlin and his Pittsburgh Steelers also have injury concerns of their own and have ruled the following players out for Sunday's game: tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle), linebacker Brandon Johnson (hamstring), running back Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) and star safety Troy Polamalu (calf).

Steelers running back Isaac Redman was limited in Friday's practice due to an ankle injury and is listed as questionable.
