The Washington Redskins’ diversion opposite Indianapolis Colts during Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday represents a homecoming of sorts for far-reaching receiver Pierre Garcon.

That’s where Garcon spent a initial 4 years of his NFL career, after being comparison in a sixth turn out of Division III’s Mount Union in 2008.

Garcon primarily played behind star receivers Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne though gradually worked his approach adult and served as Peyton Manning’s No. 2 receiver.

Garcon sealed with Washington as a giveaway representative in 2012, and this outlines a initial time that he will play during Lucas Oil Stadium as an hostile player, and a initial unchanging deteriorate assembly opposite his former team.

“It’s always cold to go behind to Indianapolis – cold city, good people,” Garcon said. “I’ll get to see my aged [position] coach, Clyde [Christensen], Reggie, a integrate other guys we played with. It’s always cool, man. Time has passed, though it’ll still be different. we never did revisit a visitors’ locker room while we was there.”

Garcon has endured a frustrating 2014 campaign. After heading a NFL with 113 catches in 2013 and recording a career-best 1,346 yards, his prolongation has forsaken significantly as Washington’s offense, and now-benched quarterback Robert Griffin III, have struggled. Garcon still leads a group in catches (46), though his totals in yards (498) and touchdowns (three) both arrange second to DeSean Jackson.

As Colt McCoy takes over during quarterback, Garcon hopes that his section can get behind on track. McCoy in Weeks 7 and 8 helped a Redskins to dual of their 3 victories, and Garcon believes a former backup can run a offense effectively.

“We’re only relocating forward,” Garcon said. “Colt is a maestro quarterback. He can adjust to anything; he can collect adult on anything. He’s ready. He’ll be good. We’ve only got to measure points in a red zone, basically; only measure touchdowns, and we’ve got a group to do it.”

Garcon had left mostly ignored in a offense during Kirk Cousins’ starts in place of Griffin, though McCoy did a improved pursuit of distributing a round some-more evenly. Garcon had 5 catches for 87 yards (including a 70-yard touchdown) opposite Tennessee, and afterwards had 4 catches for 47 opposite Dallas a following week. Since then, Garcon hasn’t had some-more than 3 catches in a game, and he hasn’t scored.

McCoy had to recover a timing with his receivers this week, though Garcon pronounced a routine has left smoothly, mostly since McCoy understands a system, plays within it and doesn’t try to force things.

“He tells us what to do. He’s got a confidence, he’s been there. It’s second inlet to him. Nobody’s jealous what he can do,” Garcon said. “He done plays [in a dual other games], extended plays and did what we wanted him to do, to tell we a truth. We design a same thing this week.”
