An MRI showed that receiver Pierre Garcon has an inflamed capsule underneath the second toe on his right foot, coach Mike Shanahan said Monday afternoon. He'll rest it until he can tolerate the pain and run closer to full speed than he did during practice last week, Shanahan said.
"That toe is just quite sore," Shanahan said. "You could see when he’s pushing off when he goes downfield he’s just not anywhere close to full speed. I saw it in Wednesday’s practice, and I saw it in Thursday’s practice. I talked to him, and he was trying to work through it. It’s just a little painful, so hopefully with the rest and maybe a little bit of time off, he’ll be able to go and the thing will heal up.
"We’re just going to have to give it some time, and hopefully it can heal quick."
It's not turf toe, or Garcon would be shut down, so that's good news for owners. But, it sounds like a lot of questionable to play in the coming weeks until it gets better or he can tolerate the pain. Guys like Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson and Josh Morgan will continue to get more looks.
