Redskins receiver Pierre Garςon, a big-money free-agent acquisition who made a big splash in the first quarter of the first game of the season before hurting his foot, hasn’t done much since then.
After missing two games he returned for games against the Buccaneers and Falcons, catching a total of four passes for 44 yards. But he was a scratch in Week Six against the Vikings, and coach Mike Shanahan said Garςon has an inflamed capsule under his toe.
With a showdown against the Super Bowl champions whom the Redskins swept last year looming, Garςon was again shut down for practice on Wednesday.
Also out was cornerback David Jones, who has an Achilles injury.
Limited in practice were cornerback Cedric Griffin (hamstring), cornerback DeAngelo Hall (knee), safety Jordan Pugh (head), defensive end Doug Worthington (calf), and defensive tackle Barry Cofield (shoulder).
Of course, the best news for the Redskins is the absence of quarterback Robert Griffin III from the injury report. If, after all, the ‘Skins were able to take two games from the Giants with Rex Grossman (i.e., RG3-and-out) under center, they could have an even better chance of winning with Griffin.
