Pierre Garçon medically cleared for training camp

AP

The Redskins haven’t made any announcements about what quarterback Robert Griffin III will be doing when training camp gets underway, but one of his most important receivers has been given the green light to practice fully.

Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports that Pierre Garçon has been given full medical clearance following his rehab from surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder earlier this offseason. Garçon visited Dr. James Andrews earlier this week and got the green light.

Garçon expressed confidence that things would play out this way in May, although he added the caveat that he was less certain about how his foot would hold up this season. He’ll be wearing a special shoe to protect the torn ligament that hampered him for almost all of last season after passing on surgery that wasn’t guaranteed to fix the problem once and for all.

Garçon led the team with 633 receiving yards while playing 10 games last season and he should push closer to the 1,000-yard mark in 2013 if his foot cooperates. That would make life easier for Griffin whenever he gets the go-ahead to go full speed.

  1. The BEST WR in Football not named Calvin Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald and the gap between Fitzgerald and Pierre ain’t that much. God Bless the Washington Redskins. The Redskins were 9-1 with #88 on the field. The Griffin-Garcon connection cannot be stopped. #ThankGODImaREDSKINSFAN

  2. “Pierre Garcon is the greatest WR in the history of the game. Screw Lance Alworth, Jerry Rice and Megatron, Pierre is just a God amongst men”

    – signed a certain moronic Redskins fan.

  3. The gap between Garçon and Fitzgerald ain’t that much, just like the Grand Canyon is a small hole!

  4. It’s going to be very tough for the Giants to match up with the Redskins offense this year. The Giants get confused by the Redskins and outrun to the outside. The Giants are going to need miracles from Eli on offense to have any chance of splitting with the Redskins this year. If the Giants can mnanage to stay in the wild card race I’ll be satisfied.

  5. When Pierre Garcon was with the Colts, he was a great HOF potential receiver. Now that he plays for the FuzzyBunnies he will likely not see many opportunities because RGkneee, Kirk Cousins and Rex Grossman will be to busy just trying to survive.

  6. Having Garcon back won’t help the Redskins much after RGIII goes down with another injury.

    Sincerely,

    Redskins Fans

    Gotta give you a response on this one. Garcon is not even a top 100 player in the NFL. Garcon hasn’t cracked the NFL top 100 players, isn’t even close to being in the top 10 of current NFL WRs, and the Redskins STILL do not have a #1 WR. It’s too bad the rest of the NFC East has had #2 WRs that would have easily been a #1 on the Skins within the past 5 years if you look at Miles Austin, T.O. Dez Bryant, Jeremy Maclin DeSean Jackson, Victor Cruz, Steve Smith, Mario Manningham, Hakeem Nicks

  12. Redskins won’t make the playoffs. It’s the Joe Flacco rookie QB jinx. A curse on all over-rated rookie QB’s coming into the league. Playoffs 1st year. That’s it.

    I would say most Colts’ Fans are pretty happy we let Peter Waiter walk seeing he can’t get healthy and thinks he worth alot. Typical of the Redskins to pay too much.

    And as far as Lefedge. He is third string, an idiot, and expendable. Hardly the face of the franchise. Neck beard is!

    NON HTTR

  14. If Pierre Garcon isn’t a number one receiver then neither is Dwayne Bowe, Steve Smith, Marvin Harrison, because he’s a receiver on that level. If num. 1 receiver has to be on a larry Fitzgerald or Calvin Johnson then most teams don’t have a num one receiver.

  15. “The Redskins haven’t made any announcements about what quarterback Robert Griffin III will be doing when training camp gets underway”

    My quess is sending cell phones pics to a waitress at Hooters. RG3 is such a great role model.
