Pierre Garcon a game-time decision for Redskins


Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Thursday that wideout Pierre Garcon’s availability Sunday would be based on “pain tolerance.”

If that was a shot across Garcon’s bow, the message apparently was received.

Garcon (foot) was limited in practice Friday and is listed as questionable, with Shanahan calling him a “game-time decision.”

“I think it’s pretty easy when it’s pain tolerance,” Shanahan said Friday in comments distributed by the team. “If he can go live with the pain and feels like he can go full-speed, then you let him go. If it’s a situation where you’re going to make it a lot worse, then obviously the chances of him playing aren’t very good. But right now, it’s a pain tolerance.

“We’ll see before the game. Obviously, he can take something and help himself a little bit. We’ll get a little workout before the game and we’ll know then.”

Safety Brandon Meriweather (knee) is out for the Redskins, and nose tackle Chris Baker (ankle) was probable.

    Be a man and get out on that field, you wimp! I’d say more, but I need to phone work and tell them that this cold is getting worse and I won’t be in on Monday either.

    It doesn’t seem too smart to be running on a foot that is giving you pain, since pain is your body’s way of telling you to slow down or stop. If I was Shanahan, I’d sit Garcon out until the foot gives him no problems, that way he doesn’t over do it and get put on IR. He would surely be missed by Griffin.

    If there isn’t a risk of causing further damage to the foot then get out there and play.
