pierre garcon

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is expected to miss his second straight week, according to reports.

Garcon received a pain-killing shot to his right foot Wednesday that doctors hoped would lessen the pain. After missing practice Thursday, head coach Mike Shanahan said he does not expect Garcon to participate Friday.

The big off-season addition has missed 3 of the Skins' first 6 games due to the lingering foot injury.

Update 11:20 PM: Paulsen's report was premature; Royal is still a free agent. The Redskins and Ravens are?among the teams in pursuit of the 25-year old receiver.

Update 6:45 PM:?Now Grant Paulsen is reporting that the Redskins will sign Eddie Royal. I had hoped the Giants might look into Royal, who was a very good slot/possession?receiver his rookie seasons (91 receptions), but has fallen off the radar the last couple of years.

With Garcon (overpaid at 5-years, $42.5 mil), Morgan (5-years, $12 mil) and Royal, the Redskins have surrounded RGIII with three young, talented receivers for the foreseeable future. This may spell the end for Santana Moss in a Redskins uniform.
