The Redskins went 9-2 with Garcon, who finished with 44 catches for 633 yards and four touchdowns in 10 regular-season starts. Garcon was limited by a torn ligament in his right foot, an injury suffered in the season opener against the New Orleans Saints. He had surgery to repair a shoulder issue this offseason, but he did not surgically repair the foot.
In fairness to Garcon, it wasn't a cut-and-dry option -- there was no guarantee the procedure completely would repair the ligament. Instead, Garcon opted to have special shoes made to help better protect the foot. He said last month on NFL Network's "NFL AM" he has to "learn a lot about my foot and how I run."
A healthy RGIII can cover up a lot of blemishes, but Garcon's health is a key plot point for training camp and beyond.
