Redskins WR Pierre Garcon has something 'kind of like turf toe'

Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon @PierreGarcon played just one quarter in Sunday win over the Saints. Fortunately for his fantasy owners, Garcon turned a short catch into an 88-yard touchdown. But it was on that play when Garcon injured his right foot. On Monday, head coach Mike Shanahan didn't shed much light on Garcon's injury, saying "it's kind of like when you have turf toe, but it's not the toe."
Garcon told the Washington Times on Sunday that he plans on playing in Week 2 versus the Rams.
"I'm feeling good," Garcon said. "Should be good to go next week. We'll get it checked on. I'll be ready back for St. Louis."

Fantasy Analysis:

We'll update Garcon's status later this week. If he can play against the Rams, he should be seen as a high-end WR3 because he is clearly RGIII's No. 1 target. He got four targets in less than 15 minutes of play. Aldrick Robinson @AldrickRobinson replaced Garcon and caught four passes, including a touchdown. He'll be worth watching in deep leagues if Garcon misses games.
