Pierre Garcon out for Washington Redskins

Pierre Garcon is unlikely to play for the Washington Redskins when they take on the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.Officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report, Garcon hurt his right foot during Week 1's victory over the New Orleans Saints an injury Redskins coach Mike Shanahan described as similar to turf toe. He has been limited in practice all week.

If Garcon doesn't play, first-year wide receiver Aldrick Robinson is expected to take his place. He had four catches for 52 yards last week after Garcon was hurt.Robinson was a sixth-round draft pick out of Southern Methodist University in 2011 who played on the Redskins' practice squad last season."He's got a lot more confidence in his hands," Shanahan said, according to The Washington Post. "Being here at the OTAs and summer camp, he is a lot more comfortable in the system. He made a couple of big plays in preseason where he has a lot of confidence. You can see that. He has a lot of speed to separate from defensive backs throughout the league. Especially when you take a look at the first game and the catches he made, he should have a lot of confidence.
