ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon says he has a torn ligament on the bottom of his right foot and he's hoping to avoid surgery.

 

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.
