"It's getting better. I can see that. But until he's able to go, it's just getting better."
That vague quote was offered up by Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan about injured wide receiver Pierre Garcon on Thursday. Garcon was limited during practice on Wednesday and Thursday and remains at risk to miss his third consecutive game due to his foot injury.
Garcon has been on the field for eight snaps this season, but his 109 receiving yards ranks third on the team behind Leonard Hankerson and Fred Davis, who has a team-leading 142 yards. The Redskins play the Buccaneers this weekend in a meeting of the two teams that allow the most fantasy points to wide receivers. If Garcon can play, I think the matchup is enticing enough to where you could start him if you need him. With Hankerson, you're basically hoping he catches one of the two deep passes that head his way. He's high risk, high reward, no matter what happens with Garcon.
