Redskins’ Pierre Garcon will not play vs. Bengals

Pierre Garcon will miss his second straight game today when he’s sidelined for the Redskins’ game against the Bengals.

Garcon was listed as doubtful with a foot injury, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed this morning that Garcon has been ruled out.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said on Friday that Garcon attempted to do some drills, but his foot was hurting and he wasn’t able to take any practice reps with the offense.

Garcon, who signed a five-year, $42.5 million contract with the Redskins this offseason, got off to a great start in Week One with an 88-yard touchdown catch. But the foot injury caused him to leave the opener before halftime, and the first half of Week One will, for another week, remain the only action Garcon has seen with the Redskins.

    It’s quite alright. We won’t really need him until the games vs ATL and Pittsburgh anyways. Our WR corp. is deep and in good hands under RGIII and the Shanahans. Today we crush the Bengals.

    voiceofreason will be pontificating the merits of whoever replaces Garcon in the line-up shortly.

    I don’t get it, take a numb shot and get out on the field! after the saints game Shanahan said he was probable with a minor injury.. I’m not saying anything but Laron Landry did say the redskins training/injury staff sucks.. all these injuries got to be linked to something.

    SMall Small Small…… Weak Weak Weak…. This whole team is small and weak. Look heres the deal For 41 Million for 3 to 4 months worth of work. I would and as most real contender teams players do. They play hurt.

    THis is a leauge of powder puff players. I hate to say it. But the Giants players remind me of the Skins of old. The 80s and 90s skins players that played hard and won tough. Played with broken ribs, finger, and so on. This game is so not worth watching anymore. The game boy generation has ruined it. I miss Madden in the booth, Musberger as well. Deep rooted hate between the coaches and teams and real man football games.
    Now we have hit infractions if you hit a guy hard, Fines if your socks are not just the right color. If you wear a Nike shirt instead of addidas. I mean WTF???? Weak small and completely female estrogen filled players. It like watching housewives play the game.

    Even if he played it wouldn’t have made a difference.We will still beat the snot out of them.And RGIII u better understand that NFL is not college football. So just get use to the punishing hits and quit complaining about players being dirty, or else find a different sport.

    Yeah, take a shot so his foot can be completely numb while he tries to run routes all day… People don’t think… Ever had a foot fall asleep & walk on it?

    Skins receivers can get it done… much deeper this year.

    It’s okay you can use your first round pick next year on a big / strong .. elite WR from college!

    Obviously “voiceofreasonsays” has changed his name to “logicalthinkersays”. With all the Redskins rhetoric, maybe it’s time to change it to “livingadelusionsays”.
