Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is a game-time decision for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams, coach Mike Shanahan said after Friday’s practice.

“He got some work in there today,” Shanahan said. “He’s feeling better. We’ll work him out before the game and see if he can go full-speed, but it was an improvement.”

Garcon avoided reporters Friday and did not comment. His availability is a matter of pain tolerance, Shanahan reiterated.

“If he can go live with the pain and feels like he can go full-speed, then you let him go,” Shanahan said. “Obviously, he can take something and help himself a little bit. We’ll get a little workout before the game, and we’ll know then.”

Garcon had four receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown on only eight plays in Week 1 against New Orleans. Aldrick Robinson replaced him and caught four passes for 52 yards and a touchdown.

Note: Quarterback Robert Griffin III was named the FedEx NFL Air player of the week, beating out Dallas quarterback Tony Romo and Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan.
