Pierre Garçon says injured foot is 100 percent healed

Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garçon said in May that he wasn’t sure if he was still going to have trouble with the injured tendon in his foot that caused him to miss games last season and play at less than 100 percent when he was on the field.

Things appear to have improved since then, however. Garçon was asked about the condition of his foot on Tuesday and said that it felt “100 percent” heading into the regular season. He promised that nothing would change about his game as a result of the injury.

“Same thing, nothing’s changed, really,” Garçon said, via Mike Jones of the Washington Post. “Still trying to make plays every time I touch the ball, trying to block downfield for my team, just move the ball downfield and score touchdowns, really. Always [excited], every time you get a chance to play football, really — especially in the NFL.”

While most eyes have been focused on the recovery of another injured member of the Redskins offense, a healthy Garçon will make life much easier for Robert Griffin III and his surgically repaired knee. The two clicked well down the stretch last season when Garçon was finally feeling well enough to play and carrying that over into the new season could lead to even better things for the Washington offense.

    Top 5 WRs in Football – Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Pierre Garcon, Steve Smith and Santana Moss. In that order. At season’s end he surpasses Fitzgerald. #TheHolyGarcon

    Didn’t this guy listen to his quarterback? He may be 100 percent but he can’t put a number on it.

    Like RG3, I highly doubt that Garçon is 100% recovered from his injury, but they’re both clearly feeling well enough to compete at a high level. I’ve always liked Pierre Garçon and his ability to stretch the field, and Josh Morgan is a serviceable WR as well. I think the Redskins would put RG3 in the best situation to succeed if they got him 1 more big-time weapon at receiver.

    The complete WR in the NFC East and better than all not named Calvin Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald. Redskins were 7-1 with him on the field! The Holy Trinity of Football – Griffin, Morris and The Holy Garcon will not be stopped! #GodsTeam

    By “clicked well” you mean the Redskins were 9-1 with Pierre playing football. Aside from RG3 and Trent Williams, he is the skins most important piece.

    Did he also wear an “Operation Patience” shirt?

    any colts WR present day > Pierre Gar-`bage

    Redskin fans are so hungry for success that one decent year makes them think they are the redskins of old. I learned all I needed when RG3 went down untouched grabbing his knee and pushing away the fumbled ball. You always secure the ball first!!!

    plus played on a team with a more balanced WR Corp (4 WR’s with at least 40 receptions each).

  13. peytonsneck18 says: Sep 3, 2013 6:40 PM

    redskins love our sloppy 2nds, pierre gar’bage was offered the right price to stay with my colts, we offered WR2 money, the skins were desperate and offered WR1 money, offer pay much?

  14. andyreidisabeachedwalrus says: Sep 3, 2013 7:10 PM

    Washington is 9-2 when Garcon & RGIII are both in the lineup blah blah blah… He’ll be injured just like the fragile qb by the bye week.

    Hey Peytonsneck18, when did you buy the colts? “My” implies ownership, and frankly from the sound of it I don’t even think you could manage a fantasy football team. Get a clue, the colts low balled Garçon cause they were purging and getting ready for a rebuild, not cause he wasn’t worth WR1 money. The dude is a play maker for the Skins and based on the numbers he put up when he was healthy, he deserves every dime he gets. Don’t hate on him or the skins cause the real owner of the colts decided to be cheap.

    Santana moss isn’t even a top 5 receiver in the NFC east

    We will see if your rapist QB holds on to the ball when he goes down this year with that weak O line you have. HTTR 6 Days till haters go away!

    Yes the rapist QB will hold onto the ball, he broke his jaw and nearly lost his top row of teeth while still holding the ball. Lets see the skinned knee RG3 try and protect the ball is all I’m saying. It is easy to be the best dancer on an empty dance floor.
