Pierre Garon has been listed as doubtful for Sundays game against the Bengals, Coach Mike Shanahan said Friday afternoon.If the Redskins No. 1 wide receiver does not suit up, it will mark the second straight game hes missed since injuring his right foot in the first quarter of the season opener in New Orleans.Pierre went through drill work but is still a little sore, Shanahan said after practice. He didnt take any reps in teams.Asked if Garons injury has worsened, Shanahan said: You just dont know. You either can do it or you cant. He pushed pretty hard today but it was just a little bit too sore. He got some good work in early but until it gets good enough to go, theres always that question mark.Aldrick Robinson replaced Garon last week and likely will do so against Cincinnati.The status for defensive backs Josh Wilson and Brandon Meriweather was more encouraging. Wilson, who left Sundays game with a mild concussion, is probable, while Meriweather, who suffered a sprained knee in the preseason, is questionable.
Ryan Kerrigan joined CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay on Thursday evening to take your questions on Facebook Live, presented by Paisano's Pizza.
What did they get to? Here's a sampling of the questions:
- Does some deep-down part of him wish Robert Griffin III were playing this week when Cleveland comes to town?
- If the Redskins defense were a pizza topping, which would they be?
- Who is the hardest running back to take down?
- How did he get the idea for his sack dance?
That, plus many more, were answered in the nearly 25-minute conversation. Watch it all in the video player below:
An explosive talent with a long-record of off-field issues, Browns receiver Josh Gordon announced Thursday that he will head for rehab.
Gordon missed the entire 2015 season due to a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, but when he has played, he has produced. In 14 starts during the 2013 season Gordon caught 87 balls for more than 1,600 yards and nine touchdowns.
A teammate of Robert Griffin III's at Baylor, some in Cleveland hoped that reuniting the QB and WR would bring back their college fireworks. That plan faded first when Griffin got injured Week 1, and while Gordon is still suspended, some hope remained that the two could connect later in the season. For now, it seems that plan will not work.
Without the decision to enter a rehab facility, Gordon would have missed the Redskins game this Sunday due to suspension.
