Garcon inactive for Redskins

Wide receiver Pierre Garcon is inactive with a foot injury for

the Washington Redskins, taking away one of Robert Griffin III’s

options.

Garcon had been questionable with a sore right foot and the team

said he would be a game-time decision. Aldrick Robinson is the

likely replacement.

St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Rodger Saffold will start in the

home opener, a week after he was hospitalized in Detroit for what

the team called a significant neck strain. Saffold returned to

practice Thursday.

Offensive tackle Tim Barnes, elevated from the practice squad to

the active roster during the practice week, is active for the

game.
