According to ESPN 980, Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon did not know as of this morning if he'd be able to play this afternoon against the Minnesota Vikings. Garcon admitted that he might have come back too soon from a foot injury suffered in Week 1 against the Saints.
Garcon had a big 88-yard touchdown in that game but he has just four catches for 44 yards in two games since returning. It appears that he might feel like more rest on that foot will be required for him to get back on the right track. Even though Robert Griffin III might be ready to start, he could be without his top receiver.
Fantasy Take: If you were thinking about starting Garcon, think again. You have to be aware that if you bench a morning player for Garcon you could be out of luck when inactive lists come out for the afternoon games.
Either have an option that doesn't have a Sunday morning game and wait to see if Garcon is active, or just bench him. That might be the best option since Garcon doesn't sound like he is 100%, he has just 44 yards in two games, and the Vikings have allowed just six passing touchdowns.
