Report: Garcon Cleared for Training Camp After Offseason Shoulder Surgery

USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins' No. 1 wideout from a season ago gets clearance to participate in training camp.

The Washington Post’s Mike Jones reported that Pierre Garcon and his surgically repaired shoulder have been cleared by Dr. James Andrews, and that the Redskins receiver will be “100 percent” for the start of training camp.

Garcon had to sit out for the Redskins’ organized team activities this summer because of the surgery, but has said that it would not be a problem going forward. The main health concern for him is a foot injury, which sidelined him for six games after it was sustained in the 2012 season opener.

Garcon played in each of the team’s final 11 games despite playing through foot pain and opted to not have surgery because doctors could not guarantee its success. According to Jones, Garcon will take extra measures this season including a customized cleat that will provide extra cushion and support as a result.

In 10 regular season games with the Redskins, Garcon caught 44 passes for 633 yards and four touchdowns. The Redskins compiled a 9-1 record in games Garcon played.
