Santana Moss thinks wide receiver Pierre Garcon is poised to have a big season in the Washington Redskins‘ offense. However, Garcon is dealing with a lingering foot injury from the 2012 season. Garcon was held back last year with a torn ligament in his right foot. Garcon elected not to get surgery on his foot this offseason but did wear special shoes to aid his rehabilitation.
“Foot’s good,” Garcon said Monday, via The Washington Post. “Hundred percent.”
Garcon’s goals remain the same however.
“Same thing, nothing’s changed, really,” he said. “Still trying to make plays every time I touch the ball, trying to block downfield for my team, just move the ball downfield and score touchdowns, really. Always [excited], every time you get a chance to play football, really – especially in the NFL.”
Last year while fighting off that injury Garcon had 44 catches for 633 yards and four touchdowns. Garcon didn’t see a lot of time in the first 9 games playing only portions of three games. The injury kept him from changing direction and sprinting without a surge of pain.
