Redskins WR Garcon has torn ligament on right foot
Garcon described the injury that's sidelined him for four of Washington's past six games as a "plantar plate tear" near his second toe. The plantar plate is a ligament that holds a toe in its joint.
Garcon said Thursday that "surgery is an option" that probably would end his season, adding: "But we don't really want to think about that at all."
He visited a foot specialist Wednesday.
Garcon only has eight catches for 153 yards this season, his first with the Redskins after signing a $42.5 million, five-year contract as a free agent.
