    Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon won’t need surgery to repair a plantar plate in his right foot, barring a setback, John Keim of the Washington Examiner reports citing a league source. Garcon did not know after the season whether or not he’d need surgery, but the second toe on his right foot is healing and more rest is the prescription, the source said.

    If the foot had been that bad, Garcon likely would have needed surgery during the season or shortly after it ended. But the Redskins and Garcon wanted to see how his foot and toe progressed in the offseason to see if surgery would be needed. Coach Mike Shanahan had said Garcon likely would see specialists in the offseason to determine the course of action. Garcon hasn’t been running on it, so the foot has finally had an extended period of rest to let it heal, the source said Garcon should be “100 percentâ€￾ by next year.
