Fred Davis cleared for action, Pierre Garcon unsure about Sunday

Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis has been cleared to continue practicing and playing after he was checked for a possible concussion. But wide receiver Pierre Garcon doesn’t yet know whether his injured right foot wil heal enough to allow him to play Sunday.

Davis suffered a big hit to the head as he tried to make a fourth-quarter catch in Washington’s 31-28 loss to the St. Louis Rams. No call was made on cornerback Janoris Jenkins, but Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said the officials missed an obvious call, and that Davis, who was wobbly when he got up and and briefly left the game, would be checked for concussion symptoms.

Davis said Wednesday that he is fine.

Garcon, meanwhile, suffered a foot injury eight plays into the Redskins’ season opener and missed Sunday’s game against the Rams.

Garcon had been limited in practice last week and tested his foot before Sunday’s game, but the Redskins chose not to play him because there was a risk of him suffering a setback, Shanahan said.

Before Wednesday’s practice, Garcon didn’t give much detail on how he was feeling, but said that his goal remained to play this week against Cincinnati, just as he had hoped to play last week against the Rams.

“That’s the goal every week, is to go,” Garcon said.
