Pierre Garçon has inflamed capsule under toe

Pierre Garcon AP

Pierre Garçon missed Sunday’s win over the Vikings after his toe injury flared up in practice last week, making it three times Garçon hasn’t been able to play this season.

Coach Mike Shanahan offered an update on Garçon’s condition Monday. Garçon has an inflamed capsule under the second toe of his right foot and that is what it made it difficult for him to run at the end of last week. Shanahan said he didn’t know how long Garçon would be sidelined as a result of the injury, but did say that the team would be letting him rest until he’s ready to go full speed.

“That toe is just quite sore, and you can see when he’s pushing off, when he goes downfield, he’s just not anywhere close to full speed,” Shanahan said, via Mike Jones of the Washington Post. “I saw it in Wednesday’s practice and saw it in Thursday’s practice, and I talked to him and he’s trying to work through it. But it’s just a little painful. So hopefully with rest, and maybe a little bit of time off, he’ll be ready to go and it’ll heal well.”

Both of Robert Griffin III’s 300-yard passing days have come with Garçon in the lineup. Leonard Hankerson and Josh Morgan started for the Redskins at receiver Sunday and they combined for five catches and 65 yards. Santana Moss added four catches for 46 yards during a relatively quiet day for the Redskins passing offense.

    We’ll be fine. I’d rather have him at 100% vs a tough team like Pittsburgh. We can rely on our deep WR corp vs a soft NYG defense.

    Good. He can spend his rest time getting the sand out.

    Soft NYG Defense? what do you call those 11 bums that line up at defense for the Skins?

    Being a die hard Skins fan I have no love for the giants but to say their defense is soft is a pretty ridiculous comment lol they played pretty tough against the niners yesterday and our defense isn’t exactly making highlight reel play after play lol

  6. timbuttrum says: Oct 15, 2012 8:34 PM

    Agreed. Die hard Skins fan here, but the Giants D is anything but soft.

  7. yetimonster says: Oct 15, 2012 8:34 PM

    He meant soft secondary, which it is due to injuries.

    Malcolm Kelly > Garcon.

    @peytonsneck18

    What is your opinion of RG3 performance yesterday? Lucks?

  12. peytonsneck18 says: Oct 15, 2012 9:25 PM

    42 milli well spent huh skins fans, hahahaha!!!!!

  13. clw1906 says: Oct 15, 2012 9:41 PM

    Funny peytonsneck18 we didn’t hear a word from you on RGIII. Guess it’s Garçon idiot talk now huh? The Jets had an inflated offensive showing against your bum team too!

    Dont you disappear after Sunday.
    This is the game you’ve been waiting for.

    The story is about your top WR having a hangnail, and you’re calling the Giants D soft?

    Please make sure you dont change your name again, all knowing one!

    It is kind of funny to see the responses from the fans of other teams that have not heard some of the idiotic statements from you know who. Don’t worry even most Redskin fans know he is a fool. Speaking as a Colts fan, I think most of America is looking forward to this game for one reason or another.

    Eli is going to carve up Washingtons “D” like it is Thanksgiving! As for RG3, He can run all he wants because the G-men will be opening up a 3 touchdown lead. This isn’t the Vikings their playing, it’ the GIANTS!!!

    Yeah dude, ask the Alex Smith and the 49ers about that soft NYG defense. It went from hurt a couple weeks ago to a nasty pass rush now. They are gonna eat the Boys and the Skins O-line up.

    Peytonsneck…Dont you have a QB you should be worried about? Or is Reggie Wayne going to pad his stats (if any) all season?

    “Weapon X” RG3 has put the city of Washington DC, the areas of Maryland, virgina, and south central Pennsylvania on his back and he is definitely strong enough to carry the load!!! HTTR!!! do not ve surprised to see the Redskins win the NFC and make a Super Bowl run if not this year but the next 5-10 years bc ” Weapon X” is just that talented that he can carry a team that far!!!!! HTTR not saying the redskins will win the NFC but don’t be surprised if they do!!! The REDSKINS WOULD BE A UNDEAFEATED TEAM RIGHT NOW IF THE DEFENSE HAD STEPPED UP, THEY HAVE LOST THERE GAMES BC OF THE SECONDARY AND HOPEFULLY THEY HAVE IT TOGETHER AND GO OUT AND WIN THE NFC EAST!!! BIG GAME THIS WEEK!! HOPE WEAPON X RG3 STEPS UP AND MAKES THE GIANTS PAY FOR THE TRASH THEY TALKED AND REDEEMS THE FANS OF WASHINGTON!!! HTTR HOPE IS ALIVE:-):-):-) Sunday is gonna be a rivalry renewed as the redskins and giants have a slugfest battle for the lead in the east!!! gonna be a hell of a game wish it was on nfl network!! SEEMS LIKE COSTS FANS ARE PRETTY JEALOUS AND BEING PETTY ABOUT RG3!!! REALIZE GREATNESS, RG3 = GREATNESS!!! LOLOL LUCK 50% COMPLETION RATING AND 2PICKS TODAY!!! RG3 TOP QB RATING IN ALL THE NFL!!! HTTR HATERS

  21. paredskinwarrior1985 says: Oct 15, 2012 10:46 PM

    “Weapon X” RG3 needs Garcon back to help out in the passing gamee!!! There is no question about it if the Redskins had a real number 1 wr, a pro bowl caliber player; they would have the most dominate wicked offense in the NFL!!!

    “We’ll be fine”? “We can rely”? What position do “you” play, logic? I’m guessing, at best, you played water boy or scorekeeper. And I’m betting the Redskins really don’t care what “you” think.

    And, for the record, the Giants “soft defense” is giving up less PPG than Pittsburgh (Pitt 23/ NYG 19), while Washington is giving up 29 PPG. And last time I checked, you win by scoring more than your opponent.

    While i understand last season is completely meaningless, and at the end of the year the giants were the team with the trophy after all the games were played and the skins of course were home watching but try not to forget the skins swept the giants last season. Im not saying the equals a redskins win on sun, or am i making a prediction , im just saying to predict a 3 td lead at any point in the game is just ridiculous considering the worse qb in the league last season lead the skins to 2 victories over the giants,.

    Cedric Griffin. Can’t imagine how they made that jump though.

    peytonsneck always hating on the skins and everybody knows why. Eli will most likely carve up the secondary but the Vikes came in with a better run defense than the Gmen.The X Factor will be Alf.
