Pierre Garcon cleared to return from shoulder injury
Pierre Garcon’s right shoulder has checked out and the wide receiver will be cleared to practice when the Washington Redskins head to training camp next week in Richmond, Va.
Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports that Garcon, who underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum, had a positive visit with Dr. James Andrews earlier this week.
The injury kept Garcon out of the entire offseason program, forcing him to do rehabilitation work. A major free-agent addition last season, Garcon missed six games because of a toe injury. He chose not to have surgery on the toe in his right foot in the offseason because there was no assurance that it would solve the problem for him.
Garcon is dealing with the toe issue by wearing inserts in his practice and game cleats. He will have a custom cleat, per the report.
