The outcome of that prediction will have a lot to do with how well Griffin recovers from his knee injury. Any predictions about Garçon’s play will also be reliant on health. Garçon struggled with a foot injury for almost all of last season, an injury that caused him to miss six games and play at less than 100 percent in several others. Garçon said that he will be on the field this season, but admitted that he doesn’t know that he’ll be playing at full speed.
“I’ll be healthy enough to play,” Garçon said on the NFL Network, via the Washington Post. “I can’t say I’ll be 100 percent, but I’ll be back out there helping the team in any way possible. I’ll be rehabbing and doing whatever I’m able to do. The trainers will let me know and we won’t try to win a Super Bowl in April, but we’ll try to move ahead.”
Garçon has resisted surgery on the torn ligament that caused him the problems in 2012 because there was no guarantee that it would fully correct the issue. The offense looked better when he was on the field so the Redskins have to be hoping that Garçon chose the right path to get him as close to 100 percent as possible once the team does start playing next season.
