Garcon likely out again for Redskins

Washington Redskins listed Pierre Garcon as doubtful for Sunday's game against the NFC East-rival New York Giants with a nagging foot injury the wide receiver has been battling for most of this season.

Garcon initially got hurt in Washington's season-opening 40-32 win at New Orleans and sat out the team's next two games before returning for a 24-22 victory at Tampa Bay on Sept. 30. He participated in the Redskins' Week 5 tilt against Atlanta as well, but was inactive for last Sunday's 38-26 triumph over Minnesota after experiencing a setback with his foot.

The offseason acquisition, who has totaled 153 receiving yards on eight catches in the three games he's played in 2012, missed practice for a third straight day on Friday.

Also held out of Friday's session were punter Sav Rocca (knee) and fullback Darrel Young (hamstring), both of whom are questionable for Sunday's game. Cornerback Cedric Griffin was a limited participant and was also termed questionable.

Tight end Fred Davis (knee), cornerback DeAngelo Hall (knee) and nose tackle Barry Cofield (shoulder) all participated fully on Friday and are listed as probable. Safety Brandon Meriweather had been ruled out with an existing knee injury earlier in the week.
