Last week, the Redskins didn’t have receiver Pierre Garçon for a game the team lost in St. Louis. They could have used him.
They may have him again for the home opener on Sunday against the Bengals. He practiced Wednesday on a limited basis.
Garçon injured his foot in Week One against the Redskins. Coach Mike Shanahan has said that Garçon’s ability to play is a matter of pain tolerance.
Also practicing on a limited basis was safety Brandon Meriweather, who has been out for the past several weeks with a knee injury. Cornerback Josh Wilson was also limited, with a head injury.
Of course, the biggest injuries aren’t on the injury report because the players are on injured reserve. Linebacker Brian Orakpo (torn pectoral) and defensive end Adam Carriker (torn quad tendon) are out for the season.
