The Washington Redskins will likely be without receiver Pierre Garcon and safety Brandon Meriweather until after the team’s bye next week.
According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, Garcon and Meriweather are unlikely to play against the Carolina Panthers this Sunday. Garcon did not practice with a foot injury that has kept him sidelined since the Redskins Week 5 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Per Jones, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Garcon will not try to play until after the bye.
Meriweather has yet to play this season as an injured left knee has kept him sidelined. Meriweather was able to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday but Shanahan said he’s a “long shot” to be able to play this week.
Perry Riley was also limited in practice with a hamstring injury suffered last week in Pittsburgh. London Fletcher (hamstring), David Jones (achilles) Sav Rocca (right knee) and Josh Wilson (shoulder) all fully participated.
