Garcon active, Grant to play for Redskins today

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is active for Week 5 against the Falcons. Garcon will not be limited in his plays according to Ed Werder. Garcon will remain a tough matchup against a good Falcons team.

Newly signed Ryan Grant will also play. Grant will occasionally spell Alfred Morris in the backfield. The former Packer should not expect more then a few touches and will not likely be used in the passing game as Evan Royster is a better option.

The Redskins’ Week 5 in-actives are S Brandon Meriweather, CB Cedric Griffin, G/C Josh LeRibeus, OLB Markus White, WR Dezmon Briscoe, OG Adam Gettis, and QB Rex Grossman.
