Schein: Do or die for Shanahan?
Garcon has avoided season-ending surgery up to this point, hoping he could get a chance to play through the pain and earn some of that five-year $42.5 million contract he signed in the offseason.
The fifth-year pro has said the right things during his rehab and is trying to get back on the field. However, the Post talked with foot and ankle surgeon Phillip K. Kwong, who wasn't privy to Garcon's injury but spoke in general terms about the difficulty Garcon faces as he tries to make it back on the field.
"It's more of a sore, nagging injury," Kwong said. "It doesn't allow you to push off and do what you need to do as far as propulsion and stopping ability."
