Yeah, when I heard them say on NFLN that he was working out with RGIII, as part of the rehab group, after his surgery, I was thinking he went ahead and had the foot fixed. I guess this shows he's not afraid to go under the knife, if the procedure is warranted.

to clarify - the surgery that Garcon had was not on his foot, so ... as has been pointed out, he's not afraid of having an operation and must not think his foot is an issue

Thanks for posting this. I heard Garcon speak of surgery the other day on an interview, but he did not specify what the surgery was for.....I assumed that it was for his foot.

For all the Skins fans who did not think that Garcon was a good signing last season to this team....my eyes told me that he was a difference maker when he was in at WR. He made difficult catches, across the middle, from RGIII, and had the speed to elude defenders after the catch. Here's hoping that Garcon, and all our injured play makers, return at full strength this season.

I don't think there were many people who thought Garcon was a bad signing. Last year's FA market was basically Vincent Jackson then everybody else. Garcon was probably the second best player on the market, and the Redskins did a good job grabbing him as early as possible. Anyone who thought we should have done better and still got a WR in free agency just didn't know what they were talking about.


Here's hoping that Garcon, and all our injured play makers, return at full strength this season.

That's really the only issue.

^^ .. thanks for the update - I think that Garcon is going to be a force again ... he understands the deal with his foot and is doing what he thinks is best for both himself and the offense

I also agree with his assessment that this offense will be even more effective this season based on the talent surrounding RG3 and the benefit of having had a year together

Pierre Garcon - WR - Redskins

Pierre Garcon (shoulder) received full medical clearance to practice when training camp opens next week.

Garcon had surgery to repair a torn labrum shortly after the Redskins were bounced from the playoffs. He had a checkup with Dr. James Andrews earlier this week and received a clean bill of health. Garcon's toe is the only issue that's still a bit concerning, but he plans to wear special shoes with inserts to help alleviate the pain. He's our No. 19 fantasy receiver heading into camp.

Pierre Garcon - WR - Redskins

Pierre Garcon has reportedly been the Redskins' most reliable receiver through four days of camp.

It's early, but Garcon says last year's foot woes have been a non-issue. If that's the case through the regular season, he'll be an absolute steal at his current late fifth-round ADP. "I'm gonna lean on him and he's gonna lean on me and we're gonna make things happen," Robert Griffin said. Garcon is playing split end in the Shanahan & Son offense, the same spot that has made stars of Brandon Marshall, Andre Johnson and Rod Smith through the years.
