Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon believes he’ll be able to get through the rest of the season even though he has to continue to deal with pain his foot.
“I think I’m going to make it through the whole season,” Garcon told the Washington Post. “Hopefully nothing crazy happens. But I’ve been dealing with the pain for so long now, it’s only getting numb to it or getting used to it. It’s slowly going away. The surgery is not something I want to do.
“But if a few doctors say I need it, then I’ll probably do it. But if I don’t need it, I’m not getting it.”
Garcon is learning to deal with the pain.
“Some days are better than others,” Garcon said. “Some days I do a lot more activity than others. But it is getting better.
“If I’d have gave up, that would hurt a lot more than the pain that I’m feeling right now. These guys are my friends and we’re all depending on each other. We need everybody in here to be Super Bowl champs, to make it to the playoffs and stuff like that. I enjoy fighting for everything that I get. It makes me appreciate it a little bit more. I can look back and say I gave it my all and I have nothing to hang my head about.”
It seems like the Redskins’ offense is an entirely different animal with Garcon because of how much rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III trusts him.
