Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (hamstring) returned to practice Saturday, Aug. 9, and had a touchdown in team drills.
Huddle Up: The addition of DeSean Jackson actually helps Garcon, who was constantly double-teamed last year. Everything is lining up for Garcon to have a monster year in new coach Jay Gruden's vertical passing attack. He currently has an ADP of Round 3.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon could return to practice Wednesday, July 30, after suffering a minor hamstring injury in practice. "I'll be good," Garcon said. "No need to really rush it, or trying put everything to the wall right now. It is the first week of training camp."
Huddle Up: The vet Garcon definitely has the right outlook with Washington's first preseason contest still 9 days away.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon thinks he and WR DeSean Jackson can become the top receiving duo in the league this season. 'That's our goal -- to unseat (Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall),' Garcon said. 'But I guess last year their stats were the top two receivers on the same team -- to be up there in the top 10 category for catches and yards or however they play it out. They are two good receivers, but we'll be up there next year fighting for that position.'
Huddle Up: Garcon led all players in targets (182) and receptions (113) last season, and that was with RGIII not playing like his rookie self for much of the season. Jackson's deep speed will certainly open up more underneath routes for Garcon, and while the latter figures to fall short of his 2013 numbers, the duo very easily could rank among the top WR combos in the league.

The Washington Redskins could consider restructuring WR Pierre Garcon's contract this offseason in order to create around $4.5 million in salary cap space.
Huddle Up: Garcon isn't quite as important with DeSean Jackson in the mix, but that shouldn't be what the Redskins tell Pierre when they're trying to rework his deal.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (ankle) said Sunday, Nov. 17, that his ankle was hurting badly after the Week 11 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Garcon exited the game early, eventually returning but he wasn't quite the same. He's definitely Robert Griffin III's go-to guy; if he's out not only does his fantasy stock drop but RG3's takes a hit as well.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is the second-most targeted receiver in the NFL with 37 targets. He is fifth in the league with 127 yards after the catch.
Huddle Up: While he's still the Skins' WR to own, Garcon ranks as No. 2 fantasy wideout with the 15th-highest point total (35). He should only get better, though, as RGII shrugs off more rust.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said it is obvious that QB Robert Griffin III (knee) is not 100 percent at this time and that he is a different player than he was last season. 'He's not fully healthy, obviously,' Garcon said. 'He's running a little bit more. But last year's RGIII was a lot different from this year's RG because of his knee. It's not surprising. We've been talking about it the whole offseason. It's the same question every day on Monday. We can find something else to talk about.'
Huddle Up: Griffin hasn't looked right thus far this season. Perhaps he needs to get over a psychological barrier after injuring his knee in January as well. He should improve as the season goes along.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said the toe that slowed him down through most of the 2012 season is completely healed.
Huddle Up: Garcon led the league in fantasy points per opportunity last season. The problem is he missed too much time to be of much help to his owners in the long run. When healthy, he is has massive upside.
