Found September 04, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
With most of the football world's focus on Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's recovery throughout the offseason, wide receiver Pierre Garçon's recovery from a foot injury that forced him to miss some time in 2012 has flown relatively under the radar. Garçon said on Tuesday that the injured toe in his foot feels "100 percent", according to the Washington Post. Garçon played a limited role in three of the first nine games of the 2012 season. He came back in Week 11 and played out the rest of the season but was unable to sprint or make cuts without experiencing pain. Despite the injury,  Garçon caught 44 passes for 633 yards and four touchdowns. But perhaps the most intriguing statistic is that the Redskins were 9-1 in games which Garçon played, and 1-5 when Garçon was absent, which shows how valuable of a piece Garçon is to the Redskins offense. With Garçon back at full speed, Washington's passing attack could be even more dangerous than it was last season,  which is a scary thought for opposing defenses.
