Pierre Garcon injury update: Likely to return, but a fantasy risk

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is questionable, but expects to play. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is listed as questionable for the Redskins game against the Philadelphia Eagles, but has said he expects to play. Garcon has a torn ligament in his toe and has not played since Week 5.

Garcon injured his foot in the season opener against the New Orleans Saints and has only appeared in three games this season. He returned to practice for the first time in over a month this week and was limited, but said he expects to play against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Garcon may play, but he is admittedly not 100% and will likely be rusty after so much time off. He showed he can be an impact player with the Redskins in Week 1, but it's unwise to expect big number out of him in his first game back.

It's worth holding onto Garcon if you've kept him on your roster all this time, but wait at least one more week and see how he performs before putting him back in your starting lineup. If you want to play him, make sure and check to see if he is officially listed as active before the game begins.
