Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is still feeling pain in his injured right foot.

Garcon returned to practice this week after missing the last four games with a torn ligament in his right foot. The Redskins held an additional practice on Monday following their bye week that was the first change Garcon has had to test his injured foot. He’s been listed as a limited participant on the Redskins’ injury report the last two days.

According to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, the injured toe is still bothering him.

“It’s gotten a little bit better,” Garcon said. “But when you go back to running on it, you can feel pain.”

Garcon said earlier this week that he is going to try everything possible to avoid season-ending surgery. According the Maske, the specific injury Garcon has is a plantar plate tear that involves a torn ligament near his second toe.

Garcon has played in just three games and has eight catches for 153 yards and a touchdown for the Redskins.

    he has been a big fa bust!!!! NOT EVEN CLOSE TO WORTH THE MONEY!!! WHEN HEALTHY HE ISN’T EVEN CLOSE TO A #1 WR!!!
    IF RG3 HAD ONE GOOD WR AND NOT THE WORST WR CORP IN ALL OF THE NFL,
    HE WOULD BE SHATTERING RECORDS. HIS WR’S LEAD THE LEAGUE IN DROP PASSES ON A NFL RECORD SETTING PACE!!!
    THE JOKES OF THE WR’S ARE SCARED TO CATCH THE BALL AND SCARED TO PLAY IN THE REDZONE!!
    GARCON SHOULD BE A #3 DEEP THREAT WR AND THAT’S IT!!!!

    Pierre Garcon, just another in the long list of failures brought to the Redskins by Danny boy Snyder and company. So while the Redskins were looking at Pierre Garcon to sign, the knock on him was he couldn’t stay healthy and it was the same for Brandon Merriweather, good player but can’t stay healthy, so their respective teams didn’t resign them. So of course the Redskins must think there is something here in the drinking water in DC that makes players magically healthy, so they signed these two bumbs to multi million dollar contracts. To date B.Merriweather has yet to play down one for the redskins because he’s on IR and Pierre Garcon has played a few snaps in a game or two. Yep, danny boy sure knows how to pick-em.
