For the first time since Week 1, Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is back and in the starting lineup today against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Garcon had four receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 1 victory over the Saints, and looks to make an immediate fantasy impact today.
Other Washington inactives include wide receiver Aldrick Robinson and safety Brandon Meriweather. The two collided during pregame warmups, which led to both being deactivated for today's game in Tampa.
According to the Washington Post, Meriweather's left knee hit Robinson in the head while he was bending over to pick up a football. Both players initially collapsed on the field, then returned to the locker room.
Running back Ryan Grant, who was added to the Redskins' roster this week, will also not play.
On the other sideline, the Buccaneers activated cornerback E.J. Biggers for the first time this season to try and stop the Redskins' passing attack.
Tampa Bay's other inactives are cornerbacks Myron Lewis and Anthony Gaitor, running back Michael Smith, safety Keith Tandy, linebacker Najee Goode, tackle Jeremy Trueblood and wide receiver Chris Owusu.
