The ongoing injury saga of expensive free agent WR Pierre Garcon continues for the Washington Redskins. It has been confrimed that Garcon suffers from a plantar plate tear on the bottom of his right foot. There is no time table for Garcon's return, but he is not expected to return before the Washington bye week, which is two weeks from now, Week 10.
Garcon apparently origianlly felt the injury during pre-season, but it was obviously not as bad as it is now. He continued practice and playing. Garcon then syas he heard a 'pop' during the New Orleans game, which was likely the actual tear itself.
After inking a five-year, $42.5 million contract with the Redskins in the off-season, Garcon has appeared in just three games and has a total of 8 receptions, a big one coming in week one, an 88 yard TD grab against the Saints. It was that TD reception that Garcon reportedly felt the pop in his foot. He did not play in the second half of the opening week win over the New Orleans Saints.
