No timetable for Pierre Garcon’s return

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan admitted that they don’t have a time table for the return of wide receiver Pierre Garcon at this point.

“We’re going to hopefully give him a little time, get that thing healed,” Shanahan said, via the Washington Times. “How long it’ll take, I don’t know: one, two days, two, three weeks, I really don’t know. But he’s a tough guy.”

Garcon stressed that he needs his toes in order to be an effective player.

“I need my toes to be a hundred percent to be fast. It’s not a hundred percent, I can’t really give it power or force,” said Garcon, who has some equipment in regular shoes and his cleats to alleviate the pain. “It’s coming along, but when I walk around, when I push off, when I use my toes, it’s mainly when I get up on my toes trying to get my sprinter’s stance and trying to get in my football stance to run a little bit.”

I would be very surprised if Garcon plays in this week’s game against the Giants  It looks like he’ll be out for at least another couple of weeks.
