Pierre Garçon leaves practice after hamstring tweak

Pierre Garcon AP

During wide receiver Pierre Garçon’s first season with the Redskins, he missed time with a foot injury that hampered him even after he returned to the lineup in the second half of the season.

Garçon knows about the problems caused by lingering injuries as a result and he’s trying to make sure he doesn’t have to deal with another one this year. Garçon reached for his right hamstring after making a catch in practice on Monday and then went to the sideline for the remainder of the session. After it was over, Garçon told reporters that he wasn’t sure when he would return but that he felt sure it wasn’t a major injury.

“Just being smart. There’s no real need to keep playing through it right now, early in the season. Just got to be smart and get it healed up,” Garçon said, via CSNWashington.com.  “No need to really rush it, or trying put everything to the wall right now. It is the first week of training camp.”

The Redskins don’t practice on Tuesday, so Wednesday would be the earliest return date for Garçon. Given his value to the offense and experience, an extra day or two to make sure that all is well might not be a bad idea.

    I knew Florio didn’t write this without even looking to see who the article was posted by. The name, Redskins, was used twice. And, there was no reference to a name change. And, what’s with this jetsbandwagon kid hating on the redskins so much? They’re not even in the same conference.

    was wondering what Santana Moss had to do with anything, seeing how his picture was posted at first.

    Pierre is a fine athlete and receiver, but he has tweak hamstrings.

    Oh no. You need hamstrings to catch 98 bubble screens

    I LOVE THE REDSKINS!!!!!

    Garçon is a beast. He plays angry and has been a great Redskin. I was skeptical when they signed him to a large contact, but he has delivered the goods. One of our few free agent success stories.
