Pierre Garcon was limited again on Thursday and his chances of playing Sunday don't look very good. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon was limited again in practice on Thursday with a foot injury and ESPN 980's Chris Russell thinks that coach Mike Shanahan does not sound optimistic on Garcon's ability to play this week against the Bengals. Garcon's injury occurred early in week 1 against the Saints and he has not been able to play since. It sounds like another game-time decision.

Fantasy Analysis: I had high expectations for Garcon coming into the year and he quickly lived up to that but injuries often have a way of messing up best laid plans. I would rate Garcon has a high WR2 when healthy but even if he plays this week he could still be limited and it might be best to wait until week 4 to get him back into lineups. However, the Bengals have not shown a good pass defense so far and if Garcon is active, he could be a good flex play.
