    Washington Redskins' Pierre Garcon Full practice Thursday

    Garcon (knee) was a full practice participant Thursday, Washington's official site reports.Garcon suffered a mild knee sprain Sunday against the Eagles, but his activity level hasn't been hindered in either practice this week.

    Redskins WR Pierre Garcon catches team-high six passes in win

    Redskins wide receievr Pierre Garcon tied for the team lead in receptions in Sunday's 24-10 victory over the Rams, grabbing six of his seven targets for 23 yards and a touchdown. The seven passes thrown Garcon's way also paced the Redskins offense in that category, although with a game plan that emphasized a short and quick passing game against the Rams' ferocious pass rush, all were within very close proximity of the line of scrimmage. Garcon now has six receptions in each of the first two weeks and along with the injury-prone Jordan Reed, is clearly one of the two primary options in the Redskins passing game while DeSean Jackson is sidelined. Garcon's four-yard touchdown was his first of the season and already puts him within two of matching last year's total.

    Redskins WR Pierre Garcon determined to rebound in 2015

    It's one thing for veteran wideout Pierre Garcon to desire a more prominent role in the Redskins offense this season. It's another thing for him to go out and prove it. And that's what Garcon has done in the offseason. He has not missed a voluntary practice and was stellar at minicamp. "I'm impressed [with] Pierre," Jay Gruden told the Washington Post. "Pierre has been here every day, working his tail off, doing a great job." Wide receivers coach Ike Hilliard was even more effusive in his praise. "Can't say enough good things about him," he said. "He's a pro's pro - a guy you model your game after if you're a young pro; a guy you pick his brain ... You watch him work; you process the game - or try to process the game the way he does. The consummate pro." Hilliard caught 68 passes for 752 yards in 2014, a year after racking up a career-high 1,346 yards receiving for Washington.

    QB situation still harming Washington's wide receivers

    Though the Redskins got a solid performance out of Robert Griffin III in Week 15, their two main wide receivers, Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson didn't benefit. Jackson, who made his return from a shin injury Sunday, had just three receptions for 15 yards, despite being targeted eight times. He led the team in targets, one ahead of Garcon, who had just four catches of his own for 36 yards. That coming off a nine-catch, 95-yard showing last week. Both players have shown the ability to be productive, but the inconsistent quarterback play has hurt them this season. Whether Griffin or Colt McCoy gets the starting nod in Week 16, neither player should be viewed as more than a low-end starting option against the Eagles, though both players had 100-plus yards and a touchdown in a prior meeting.
