Pierre Garcon inactive, Aldrick Robinson scheduled to start

ST. LOUIS — Wide receiver Pierre Garcon is on the Washington Redskins’ inactive list for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome.

Garcon will miss the game after suffering a foot injury a week earlier on an 88-yard touchdown catch during the Redskins’ season-opening victory at New Orleans.

He did not return to that game after being hurt and missed practice time during the week. The Redskins had called Garcon’s availability a game-time decision. Coach Mike Shanahan had said during the week it was mainly an issue of how much pain Garcon could tolerate.

Aldrick Robinson is scheduled to start in Garcon’s place.
