Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon has the option to undergo surgery on his injured foot, but that would end his 2012 season.
“We don’t really want to think about that at all,” said Garcon,via the Washington Post.
There’s still a chance Garcon could end up needing surgery, but for now his hope is that rest will do the trick.
Garcon is the Redskins’ best receiver and it’s better for him to try to come back this season and not end his season right now.
If Garcon comes back too early he could end up injuring himself even more.
“I don’t want to be on the sideline. It is frustrating. But you’ve just got to think about what’s best for it and what’s best for your future, because this is long term,” Garcon said. “You don’t want to make it worse just for one season. As bad as I want to be out there, it’s a tough decision we’ve got to deal with.”
