Redskins WR Pierre Garcon Says It Will Take ‘Some Time’ For Foot To Fully Heal
Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon said Thursday that his injured foot is improving but it’s “going to take some time” until it is completely healed and he is able to play at full capacity, Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports.
“It’s going to take some time to feel back like my old self, like it was in training camp,” Garcon said in the locker room at Redskins Park. “But it’s a process. It’s a battle. But it’s coming along.”
Garcon returned to the Washington Redskins’ lineup for last Sunday’s game at Tampa. He’d missed the previous two games after hurting his foot on an 88-yard touchdown catch and run during the Redskins’ season-opening win at New Orleans.
The Redskins and Garcon acknowledge that he was not yet unhindered by his injury.
“There is no way you miss 2-1/2 weeks of practice and play at 100 percent,” Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday. “We didn’t expect him to play at 100 percent. But he played a lot of plays, and he played at a very high level. He helped us win the game.”
