Pierre Garcon injury update: Out again as lost fantasy season continues

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

Pierre Garcon is ruled out for Week 8 against the Steelers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (foot) has been officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. This news is only a formality, as Garcon has already been ruled out earlier in the week. He continues to battle a torn ligament in his toe, and there's a chance he may need season-ending surgery.

The Redskins are likely going to shut him down until after the Week 10 bye.

Fantasy Impact: Garcon is trying to avoid surgery, but he may not have a choice soon enough - the season is slipping away from him.

Fantasy owners should probably think about dropping him. He hasn't been productive since Week 1 and there's no telling when he'll be 100%. It's just not worth the headache.
