Receiver Pierre Garcon missed the Washington Redskins' game against the New York Giants on Sunday, and he reportedly likely will be out the team's next two games as well.

USA Today, citing a person familiar with the specifics of Garcon's foot injury, reported that Garcon has a torn tendon in his foot and likely will sit out through the Redskins' bye in Week 10 and try to return in Week 11 against the Eagles.

The painful swelling on the bottom of his right toe has kept him out of four of Washington's past six games.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said this past week that Garcon has received injections in an effort to help the toe.

Garcon only has eight catches for 153 yards this season. He signed a $42.5 million, five-year contract as a free agent this offseason.
