Pierre Garcon likely to play today in Tampa Bay


Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon may finally be ready to take the field today.

Garcon, who had a great start to the season in Week One but suffered a foot injury in that game and hasn’t played since, is listed as questionable for today’s game against the Buccaneers. But Rich Campbell of the Washington Times reports that Garcon will try to play, and Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Garcon is more likely to play than not.

If Garcon does play, he likely wouldn’t be on the field for every offensive snap, as the Redskins want to take it easy on his injured foot. So Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will be spreading the ball around to Garcon and receivers Leonard Hankerson, Josh Morgan, Aldrick Robinson and Santana Moss, and tight end Fred Davis.

The Redskins-Buccaneers game is a 4:25 p.m. Eastern kickoff today in Tampa Bay, so we’ll likely learn for sure whether Garcon is playing when the inactives for that game come out, at around 3 p.m. Eastern.
