Pierre Garcon Still Limited In Practice; Potential Return Uncertain
ASHBURN – Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan admitted Thursday that Pierre Garçon’s sprained right foot is “nagging him a little bit more than I was hoping it would” after he was limited in practice yet again.
Garçon, whom Shanahan specified is experiencing turf toe-like symptoms “right next to the big toe,” originally injured the foot in the season opener Sept. 9 at New Orleans. His status for Sunday’s home opener against Cincinnati is uncertain.
The receiver declined to speak on his health yet again Thursday, and his agent wrote in a text message that the injury “is pretty painful” and he hasn’t “heard of anything, as far as we know” that points to anything more serious.
Cornerback Josh Wilson (concussion) and strong safety Brandon Meriweather (sprained ligaments in left knee) were also limited in practice for the second consecutive day.
