Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon left Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints with a foot injury.


UPDATE: Monday, September 10 at 3:15 p.m. ET by Timothy Rapp

Positive news for Redskins fans—Garcon doesn't have any breaks or fractures in his injured foot. From the official Twitter account of the Redskins:

HC Mike Shanahan says “X-rays negative” on WR Pierre Garcon. Rookie S Jordan Bernstein “out for year”.

Garcon and Robert Griffin III appeared to have developed a pretty solid rapport on Sunday, so getting him back to action as soon as possible will be a priority for the 'Skins. This update is is good indication that he'll be back sooner rather than later.

----------END OF UPDATE----------


He is questionable to return, according to ESPN Radio's Chris Russell via Twitter:

Right foot injury for Garcon..He is questionable to return, officially. #Redskins

Garcon caught four balls for 109 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game. He was on the receiving end of rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III's first career NFL touchdown pass.

The 26-year-old is arguably Washington's top option at wide receiver. He will certainly be missed if he doesn't return to the game on Sunday.

Stay tuned for more information on Garcon's status as it becomes available.
