Pierre Garçon says shoulder’s fine, not sure about foot

Wild Card Playoffs - Seattle Seahawks v Washington Redskins Getty Images

Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garçon spent most of last season battling a foot injury that kept him from going full speed on the field.

He doesn’t think the shoulder injury that required surgery this offseason will lead to the same kind of difficulties this time around. Garçon is expected to be fine for the start of training camp and called the surgery on his labrum “just minor.”

“The shoulder is good,” Garçon said, via Mark Maske of the Washington Post. “There shouldn’t be any worries for me for the season coming up. So it should be good to go.”

Garçon is less sure about the foot, however. Garçon opted not to have surgery during or after the season because doctors couldn’t guarantee that an operation would wind up taking care of the problems caused by the torn ligament on the bottom of his foot. While the foot is feeling better, Garçon can’t say for sure whether he’d be bothered by the injury again next season.

“You never know,” Garçon said. “We could be playing on a bad field and something happens. Or we could be playing on a good field and something happens. I can’t predict what’s going to happen or how it’s going to be. But I’m going to continue to rehab it and continue to work at it and continue to monitor it.”

Garçon is expected to be back on the field for camp and the Redskins hope that he’ll remain there throughout the season in his second year with the team.

    Garçon has the potential to be a mediocre 3rd or 4th receiver at best plus it doesn’t help he has an overhyped qb who can’t throw and is always hurt

    Say hello to the most overrated injury prone WR in the game of football. Made popular only because of Peyton and the (L)East Coast media hype. Go back and look at some of his plays last season and learn almost 30% of them came from broken defenses and not his own ability to get open.

    Who cares about this second rate WR, that only got passes because Defenses were leary of RGknee. New yr and his numbers will come down to where they belong.

    Griffin threw for 3,200 yards and 20 touchdowns while completing 65.6-percent of his passes en route to winning offensive rookie of the year honors.

    Garcon,

    I’m sure it’s extremely frustrating to be a professional athlete with a torn ligament. I get it.

    What I don’t get is your refusal to face the truth.

    YOU NEED SURGERY. GET IT DONE.

    You can continue to “rehab it, and continue to work at it and continue to monitor it” all you want.

    How did that work out for you last season?

    You opted not to have surgery during or after the season because doctors couldn’t guarantee results.

    Would you like a guarantee?

    Here’s one:

    You’ll be bothered by the injury again next season, and you’re going to miss multiple games.

    pierre would fight with Ruben Randle, Ramses Barden and Louis Murphy for playing time on NYG.

    Pieere Gar-bage! !! Paid as a #1 WR but is a #2or #3 at most, # FTTR

    Only the dead skins would pay him that amount.
