Pierre Garcon injury: Redskins' WR a 'long shot' to play vs. Giants, Mike Shanahan says

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon is likely out against the Giants this Sunday

Robert Griffin III will likely be without one of his weapons this Sunday in the first NFC East clash of his career.

Wide receiver Pierre Garcon is a 'long-shot' to play against the Giants in Week 7, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Thursday. Garcon took a pain-killing injection in his right foot on Wednesday that team doctors are hoping will lessen the pain enough for him to play.

Garcon has missed three of the Redskins' six games this season after catching an 88-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter of a Week 1 win against the New Orleans Saints. Unfortunately, for the Redskins that touchdown pass accounts for more than half of Garcon's receiving yardage this season.

Following Week 1, Garcon missed the next two games with a the right foot injury that has plagued him. He returned in Week 4, but caught just four passes in two games before missing the Redskins' Week 6 win over the Vikings.

This past off season, the Redskins signed Garcon to a five-year, $42.5 million contract with $21.5 million guaranteed.
