Pierre Garçon says he won’t be 100 percent for a while

The Redskins got wide receiver Pierre Garçon back for Sunday’s win over the Buccaneers, although it was clear he wasn’t 100 percent recovered from his foot injury during the game.

Garçon’s biggest play came when he fell on a Robert Griffin III fumble in the end zone as he was held to just one catch for 20 yards in the passing game. His presence definitely seemed to help out the rest of the offense, though, and it looks like he’ll be in the lineup again this week. Garçon did caution that he doesn’t think he’ll be fully back to his old self for a little while longer.

“It’s going to take some time to feel back like my old self, like it was in training camp,” Garçon said, via Mark Maske of the Washington Post. “But it’s a process. It’s a battle. But it’s coming along.”

Garçon is practicing fully this week after being limited last week so things are definitely trending in the right direction healthwise. The same is true of tackle Trent Williams, who has also returned to a full workload after being hindered last week by a bone bruise in his knee. The Redskins will need to be as close to full strength as possible this week in order to put an end to the Falcons’ undefeated start to the season.

    He sure is not a #1 receiver. RG III will continue to be up and down until they get him some receiving help

    RGIII has been up and down? He has been the only reason the redskins r scoring points and he got offensive rookie of the month. Which IMO he’s gonna get rookie of the year if he stays healthy. He’s a beast!

    Obviously orangeclipper hasn’t watched any of the games because RG3 has been “up” for all of them. Hasn’t played a bad game yet.

    Why is it so important to you to see someone fail or get hurt? We root for the same team but I don’t get the hate. Chill bro, we don’t need the bad karma you be slinging.

    Hah, you guys are pretty sad excuses for fans. You obviously love being trolls more than being fans.

    4 thumbs up!!? You people have to be kidding me. This guy is clearly just a troll who thinks he’s actually worrying Skins fans. Also I’m pretty sure the definition of a “real, true fan” is a fan who wouldn’t switch allegiances ever, and especially not when his team just picked up the most exciting playmaker to come out of the NCAA in decades (no disrespect to Cam Newton).

    As a die-hard NYG fan living in the Washington area (ironically, I work in finance for a guy named Lincoln and live in Arlington, VA), I’ve seen, somewhat unintentionally, all of Griffin’s games and I can tell you objectively that RGIII is the real deal. Does that mean the Skins are a good team? No, they aren’t. But teams come and go, quarterbacks stay.

    Were my G-Men good when they picked up Eli? No, they were pretty dang bad, but eight years later we have two rings to thank him for.

    While Skins fans are always overoptimistic, there’s not one single thing about Griffin that should concern anyone. He’s played his heart out, and put his very middle-of-the-pack team in a position to win every game he’s played.

    Did I laugh my head off when Josh Morgan threw the ball at Finnegan to pull them out of field goal range, and when Kyle Shanahan yelled his way out of a comeback victory against the Bengals? Of course I did, I’m a Giants fan, but I consider it my patriotic duty as a football fan to slam dumb internet trolls, or possibly really stupid Washington fans, for refusing to recognize a good thing when they see it. And Robert Griffin the Third is a very good thing.
