Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garçon will be a game-time decision Sunday in St. Louis, Coach Mike Shanahan said Friday afternoon.
Garçon, Robert Griffin III’s top target, left last week’s victory in New Orleans with an injury to his right foot. He did not practice Wednesday and was limited on Thursday and Friday. He'll be listed officially as "questionable" on the NFL's injury report, Shanahan added.
“He got some work in there today,” Shanahan said. “He’s feeling better. We’ll work him out before the game and see if he can go full speed. It was an improvement.”
For the second straight day, Shanahan said pain tolerance is likely to determine whether Garçon suits up against the Rams.
“If you could go live with the pain, looks like he can go full speed, then you let him go,” the coach said. “But if it’s a situation where you’re going to make it a lot worse, then obviously the chances of him playing aren’t very good. But right now it’s pain tolerance. We’ll see before the game.”
Shanahan also mentioned that Garçon could take medication to help ease the pain.
If Garçon is unable to play, he’ll be replaced in the lineup by Aldrick Robinson.
