Pierre Garcon Cleared To Practice

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierce Garcon has received full medical clearance to return to practice as soon as training camp opens.

Garcon had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder after the Redskins were eliminated in the playoffs by the Seattle Seahawks. He had a check up with Dr. James Andrews earlier this week and was given the green light to return to work.

The only concern right now for Garcon and the Redskins is his toe, not that big of an issue, as he looks to wear a special shoe with inserts to relieve his pain.

The 26 year old wide receiver had a great season last year, as he caught 44 passes, picking up 633 yards and 4 touchdowns, the longest being 88 yards. What a play that was, in the first game of the season against the New Orleans Saints. just, wow.

Since he was given a clean bill a health from his doctor, he should be thrown right into the mix as soon as possible. Well, I’m sure coaches won’t have any choice, since I’m sure he’s been eager to be cleared ever since undergoing surgery.

Camp’s open up soon and right now Redskins fans have to be very excited, having RG3, Garcon and Brian Orakpo back in action.
