Pierre Garçon still undecided on surgery

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.

    Hopefully he can get hand surgery too… Another case of a season full of drops by good old unreliable garçon. So glad the redskins signed this joke, he was so not worth the price tag. Oh well, I’ll take Reggie Wayne, TY Hilton, and even lavon Brazill over that chump any day of the week!!!

    Injuries have ruined the Redskins. Time to rebuild from scratch.

    Garçon made so many difficult catches and had so few drops this year, playing hard through injuries. Bitter colts fans comments are laughable at this point. Hopefully he just gets healthy with whatever choice he makes. Even on the bad foot he showed flashes of being a star.

    I’m sure waiting until April is a better option. Rest now then surgery, no OTAs no training camp. That seems to be the goal of some of these guys.

    Even with Cousins throwing to him, Garçon is gonna have a huge season next year….

    That’s the problem, garçon will make tough catches, it’s the ones that actually hit him in the hands he has problems with. His game is weak, Reggie Wayne 17 million, or garçon 35 million? That’s a bitter statement right there. Since garçon in his lifetime won’t smell 1/3 of Reggie Wayne’s accomplishments. That’s alright skins, when he’s done with his contract, he will be right there with maybe Sidney rice.

    When in doubt whether to have surgery–have the surgery.

    When in doubt as to when to have the surgery–have it now.

    Simple rules, but athletes are usually too stupid to follow them.

    There are plenty of areas to take legitimate shots at on Washington’s roster, but this is just funny. Although I’m from DC, I had no idea how staggering his numbers really were.

    Through the nine games Garcon started in Washington, he had two (2) (two, I kid you not) drops. Perhaps even more impressive, with Garcon on the field, the Redskins punted 25 times. The NFL, as a whole, averages a little over 5 punts a game, so 8.25 games with only 25 punts is ridiculous.

    (Don’t believe me? Look it up for yourself, it’s not that hard)
