ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon and safety Brandon Meriweather have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, while linebacker Perry Riley is questionable with a hamstring injury.
Neither Garcon nor Meriweather had been expected to play. Garcon hasn't practiced all week because of a torn toe ligament in his right foot that has caused him to miss five of the last seven games. Meriweather has been hindered by a recurring left knee injury that has sidelined him all season.
Riley was injured in last week's 27-12 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers and was limited in practice all week. Coach Mike Shanahan said Friday he won't know until game time whether Riley will play.
