When the season ended, Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garçon was unsure whether or not he’d have surgery to repair a torn plantar plate on his right foot.
Garçon still hasn’t made a final decision, although a report from Zac Boyer of the Fredricksburg Free-Lance Star quotes a source who says Garçon is leaning toward resting his foot instead of having an operation. Garçon is reportedly “not keen” on the idea of having surgery, which would have a recovery time of three to four months without a guarantee that it would fix the problem.
Garçon missed six games overall this season because of the injury, four of them coming after an ill-advised comeback after missing a pair of games early in the season. He still led the team with 633 receiving yards and caught 33 passes over the final six weeks of the season despite not always looking 100 percent when he was out on the field.
Another Redskins receiver, Josh Morgan, had surgery on his leg at the end of last week.
A final decision is expected in the next few weeks as to whether or not Garçon will be next up in the operating room.
