Coaches say Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is still not 100 percent recovered from his foot injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon continues to be bothered by his injured foot, according to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Garcon played 39 snaps in last week's loss to the Atlanta Falcons but finished with just 24 yards on three catches. Shanahan said Thursday (via The Washington Post) that it still hurts Garcon to run. However, Shanahan added that he appreciates Garcon being out there and just hopes that the injured foot gets better each week.

Fantasy Impact: Garcon hasn't been the same since injuring the foot in Week 1 in New Orleans, when he raced for an 88-yard touchdown. His best fantasy play since has been recovering a fumble in the end zone to help the Redskins beat Tampa Bay in Week 4. Garcon is a fringe No. 2/strong No. 3 fantasy option at wide receiver this week against the Minnesota Vikings.
