Redskins injury report: Garcon not better

Redskins Confidential,Sports,John Keim


Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon, who missed the St. Louis game, still hasn’t practiced in full this week. And coach Mike Shanahan did not sound optimistic about his chances for playing in the home opener Sunday vs. Cincinnati.

“He’s working extremely hard, but it’s still sore,” Shanahan said. “That’s why he’s not taking all the reps… You just kind of keep your fingers crossed, but it’s nagging him a little bit more than I was hoping it would.”

Garcon bruised his right foot in the season opener at New Orleans and was limited to eight plays.

“Hopefully it gets well,” Shanahan said.

Corner Josh Wilson (concussion) and safety Brandon Meriweather (knee) both were limited as well. Meriweather still had his left knee taped.
