Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon believes he’ll be able to get through the rest of the season even though he has to continue to deal with pain his foot.
“I think I’m going to make it through the whole season,” Garcon told the Washington Post. “Hopefully nothing crazy happens. But I’ve been dealing with the pain for so long now, it’s only getting numb to it or getting used to it. It’s slowly going away. The surgery is not something I want to do.
“But if a few doctors say I need it, then I’ll probably do it. But if I don’t need it, I’m not getting it.”
Garcon is learning to deal with the pain.
