While one member of the Washington Redskins will be undergoing surgery this offseason, another is still hoping to avoid it.
According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, punter Sav Rocca will have surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. Rocca continued to kick through the injury to his kicking leg since injury his leg in late October. Rocca is planning to have the surgery and do the rehab back home in Australia.
Meanwhile, wide receiver Pierre Garcon is planning on getting several opinions on the best course of action for his injured toe. He’s hoping that course of action isn’t surgery.
“That’s the LAST thing [I want to do],” Garcon said. “Hopefully surgery is not an option, but if I get enough doctors to say I need surgery, then surgery it is. But, if I can limp around for seven more years, I’ll probably limp around for seven more years and be all right.”
Garcon suffered a torn ligament on his second toe of his right foot and missed six games because of the injury. He returned for the final six games of the season and caught 33 passes for 480 yards and three touchdowns as the Redskins won their final seven games to win the NFC East.
