According to Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan, although he would like Pierre Garcon to return next week, he does not conceivably see him back until after the Bye Week. Washington faces the Carolina Panthers this upcoming week and then enter their needed bye week.
Bad news for the Redskins.
Redskins desperately need a play maker who can catch the ball make plays. That was evident with ten pass drops yesterday. With Gracon and TE Fred Davis lost, the Redskins passing game exceptionally tanked this past week against Pittsburgh. Barely any blame can be given to QB Robert Griffin III. Time and time again, Griffin delivered the football where NFL caliber receivers should have made the catches.
Hopefully, Washington can reestablish the run game against Carolina and limp into the bye week with a win. That would give Garcon an extra week to heal his ailing foot injury. The Redskins offense is in desperate need of Pierre Garcon.
