Pierre Garcon injury update: Redskins WR will try to play against Buccaneers

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Injured receiver Pierre Garcon will try to play tomorrow after sitting out with a foot injury for two weeks.

Injured Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon will try to play tomorrow against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Washington Times reporter Rich Campbell.

Campbell reports the decision to hold Garcon out in the previous two weeks was made as soon as the day before. Garcon, the 6'0" receiver out of Mount Union College, is trying to overcome a foot injury.

Garcon has played in just one game this season, catching four passes for 109 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' opening-week win against the New Orleans Saints. The fifth-year pro emerged in 2008 as a reliable receiver in Indianapolis, and had career highs last season with the Colts, catching 70 balls for 947 yards and six touchdowns.

If Garcon is not able to play, a corps of Josh Morgan, Leonard Hankerson, and Aldrick Robinson will continue to fill in. The three have combined for 321 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 21 receptions.
