Skins Pierre Garcon Says Injured Foot May Never Heal
Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon was having an explosive start to his season, until he hurt his foot.
What was initially thought to be a minor injury, has caused Garcon to miss the last 6 ball games.
Even after a bye week, and putting off surgery, Garcon is not sure when he’ll be healthy according to the USA Today.
“I can’t tell you guys much of anything about what’s going on, but it’s getting back into a groove,” he said. “It’s not 100%. It’s a pain all the time. Walking, running, cutting. All the time. I’ll probably have to deal with it the rest of my life.
“I never really want to get surgery unless it’s a must. The surgery is not guaranteed to fix it, so that’s another thing. I’ve never had surgery. If I have to get surgery, I’ll get it, but they’ll have to put me under for a long time and do it while I’m not paying attention at all.”
Garcon signed a five-year, $42.5 million deal this offseason, and was part of the magic Robert Griffin III had to start the season with.
