Well that is fantastic news. Glad he avoided the dreaded knife. And we need Garcon back at nothing less than 100% for him to do what he was brought here to do.

I heard that and read about it, good sign, good sign. So we only have one strating wr who had surgery. That's good!

Here's the Examiner's take via Riggo's rag:

http://riggosrag.com/2013/02/19/redskins-garcon-feel-foot-should-be-fine-without-surgery/?utm_source=FanSided+Daily&utm_campaign=1f3daaa20f-UA-36315219-12&utm_medium=email

However, it seems as if he and the organization are confident that he will be ready to go by week one. According to the Examiner:

Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon won’t need surgery to repair a plantar plate in his right foot, barring a setback, according to a league source. Garcon did not know after the season whether or not he’d need surgery, but the second toe on his right foot is healing and more rest is the prescription, the source said.
If the foot had been that bad, Garcon likely would have needed surgery during the season or shortly after it ended. But the Redskins and Garcon wanted to see how his foot and toe progressed in the offseason to see if surgery would be needed. Coach Mike Shanahanhad said Garcon likely would see specialists in the offseason to determine the course of action. Garcon hasn’t been running on it, so the foot has finally had an extended period of rest to let it heal. The source said Garcon should be “100 percent” by next year.

This is very good news. Garcon when healthy has been a great weapon for us so far!

While I'm glad that the injury isn't that bad that it required surgery, I think I agree with Slateman on this one that in the long run, it might have been better for him to get the surgery now than waiting a year or two.
