Talk about a tough offseason for Josh Morgan.
The Washington Redskins wide receiver is on the mend from three surgeries but expects to be much healthier this coming season in his second year with the club.
According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, Morgan had surgery on his right ankle and he’s now walking around fine but has yet to be cleared for running. He also said that the same week he had ankle surgery he underwent surgery to repair torn ligaments in each hand. One of the hand injuries was suffered in the season opener.
“Basically, the whole year, I was playing with two torn ligaments in both hands,” he said. “So they corrected that and got all that stuff straight.”
A free-agent addition last year when the Redskins also signed Pierre Garcon, Morgan hopes to be more involved in the offense in 2013. But right now, he’s following a rehabilitation path.
“I’m just doing what they tell me to do,” he said. “We’re all just worried about the start of the season and nothing else.”
