Pierre Garcon Injury: Redskins WR Out Vs. Bengals

The Washington Redskins will need to take on the Cincinnati Bengals without wide receiver Pierre Garcon, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that he is officially out for Sunday's Week 3 matchup. Garcon was listed as doubtful on the team's official injury report Friday, after being a limited participant in practice all week. Garcon is presently recovering from a foot injury.

Rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III is still establishing who his favorite targets are, but it's clear that Garcon will be missed regardless. In Week 1, Griffin passed for 320 yards and looked dominant, but when Garcon was absent in Week 2 against the St. Louis Rams, Griffin threw for just 206 yards. Garcon had four receptions for 109 yards, including a touchdown, in Washington's Week 1 win.

It's likely that Joshua Morgan and the young Leonard Hankerson will get more looks with Garcon out, while Santana Moss' spot on the depth chart has never been in doubt. There's also unheralded rookie Aldrick Robinson, who managed to snag four passes for 52 yards in Week 1.

Pierre Garcon Injury: Redskins Receiver Doubtful For Week 3

Coach Mike Shanahan has said that Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is doubtful for Week 3's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to John Keim.

The wideout missed last week's loss to the Rams with a foot injury, and was a limited participant in practice this week.

Before leaving Washington's Week 1 win, Garcon racked up four receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown, including an 88-yard touchdown reception.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III will miss Garcon's presence. Griffin passed for 320 yards in Week 1, and 206 in Week 2.

This is Pierre Garcon's first season with the Washington Redskins, after spending four seasons in Indianapolis with the Colts.

Filling in for Garcon, Joshua Morgan, Leonard Hankerson, and Santana Moss are likely to receive most of Griffin's targets.

The Redskins are currently 1-1, and finished last season at 5-11.

Pierre Garcon Injury: Redskins WR Inactive Vs. Rams

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon will miss Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams with a foot injury suffered against the Saints in Week 1, according to the Rams' official twitter account. Garcon will be replaced in the lineup by rookie Aldrick Robinson, who caught four passes for 52 yards and a touchdown in his debut last Sunday.

Garcon was injured while running out an 88-yard touchdown catch from rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. He had four catches for 109 yards and that score before leaving with the injury. Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan had said earlier in the week that the wide receiver's status was a matter of "pain tolerance."

The fifth-year wideout came over from the Indianapolis Colts during the offseason.

The Redskins face the Rams at 4:05 ET in the Edward Jones Dome.
