Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon told the the local media that there’s still a chance he could have to undergo season-ending foot surgery if it’s not where it needs to be after the bye week.
“We’re trying to avoid that at all possible costs,” Garcon said, per The Washington Post. “But at some time, you’ve got to be realistic and you’ve just got to have it and hopefully it’s a successful surgery and recover from it.”
Garcon says his foot is getting better.
“It’s getting better,” he said. “I’m trying to put more force on it; I’m walking around every day, I’ve got orthotics in my shoes, and I’m trying to give it a little bit more push. But it’s still not where it needs to be.”
Garcon says he’ll test his foot out after the Redskins’ week 10 bye.
“There’s no real update or miracle that happened overnight,” Garcon said. “We’re going to try to go after the bye, see how it feels. But we’re still trying to get as much pain out of it as we can.”
I get the feeling that garcon will be forced to miss the remainder of the season.
