Pierre Garçon still battling hamstring woes

Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garçon has returned to practice since injuring his hamstring last week, but he’s not past the point where the team is free of worries about things getting worse.

Garçon sat out Tuesday’s joint practice with the Patriots because of lingering soreness in the muscle, which he originally injured on July 28. When Garçon was first injured, he said he was just being safe by pulling himself out of practice and he said pretty much the same thing on Tuesday.

“Just being precautions,” Garçon said, via CSNWashington.com. “If it was a game today, I would have been able to play.”

There is a game scheduled for Thursday against New England, but no word on whether or not Garçon will be taking part. There’s also a question about safety Ryan Clark, who left Wednesday’s practice with a hamstring injury of his own. Clark said he was “trying to be smart about it” so that he could play on Thursday, but the team may decide that precaution remains the wisest course of action at this point in the schedule.

    I’ll admit Garcon’s a tough dude after the catch. (Still not a World Champ though.)

    They really need this dude healthy so Rg3 can keep tossing slants and bubble screens. Wprd out of Richmond is Griffin continues to toss wounded ducks in deep balls and couldn’t find his 2nd reads two consecutive days against the Patriots defense.

    “Just being precautions.”

    Not an English major in college, I’m guessing?

    Now they have two busted WR’s. MeSean and Garcon. HAIL!

    hope Garcon’s Hammy heals up. Hamstring issues for a WR is similar to wrist flexor strains to baseball pitchers. You can play through those injuries, but your effectiveness is greatly affected.

    Dear Haters,
    thank you for taking time out of your day to share you fear of the Redskins. As Reggie Jackson said, “Fans don’t boo nobodies.”
    Your choice to read articles about a team you dislike only proves that your are jealous of this team and it’s fans.

    HAIL!
