Redskins WR Pierre Garcon doesn't feel like his old self yet

Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon @PierreGarcon was able to practice fully on Wednesday and Thursday. Is he ready to play fully? According to Garcon, who was inactive for two of the past three games with a foot injury, not yet.
"It's going to take some time to feel back like my old self, like in training camp," Garcon said Thursday. "But it's a process. It's a battle. But it's coming along. ... Eventually I'll put it past me. But there's no set time [or] date for it."

Fantasy Analysis:

Garcon did say that his foot is getting better every day, and he is expected to suit up for Sunday's showdown against the Falcons. This should be a high-scoring matchup centered around the two most productive fantasy QBs right now, but keep in mind that Atlanta allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers through the first month of the season. Given the matchup and the admission that he's not quite yet normal, I'd lean toward puttiing Garcon on my bench and waiting one more week on him.
