Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon was very limited in practice today, according to head coach Mike Shanahan, while recovering from a foot injury suffered in their week 1 win over the Saints. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said that Garcon had only ran eight plays in the game before injuring his foot, but he still managed to catch four balls for 109 yards and a touchdown, including one for 88-yards. Mike Shanahan said that his status would depend on his "pain tolerance."
Fantasy Analysis: If his status depends on his ability to handle pain, most NFL players will play. That's good news for whether or not he's active but could be bad news if he tries to play on a bad foot and is unable to go at 100%. The Rams should be a good matchup as they allowed 346 passing yards to the Lions in week 1, but it's a little worrisome to know that Garcon could be hurting. Owners will have to see how Garcon fairs in Friday's practice.
