Pierre Garcon injury: Redskins wide receiver to visit Charlotte doctor Wednesday

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

The Redskins receiver will have his foot injury check out by a specialist in North Carolina.

Washington Redskins receiver, Pierre Garcon, who has played in just three games this season, will visit a doctor in Charlotte, N.C. on Wednesday while he continues to rest a foot injury that has kept him sidelined most of the season.

Comcast Sportsnet Washington D.C.'s Chick Hernandez relayed the news via Twitter on Tuesday, reporting that Garcon would make the trip to see Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte.

Garcon, who was signed to a five-year, $42.5 million deal, in the offseason, has been dealing with what has been labeled an inflamed capsule. A USA Today report from Monday said that a source had told the paper that the injury was in fact a tendon tear, and Garcon could be out an additional two weeks while resting and healing the injury. The time table would mark Garcon's return at around Week 10, after the Redskins bye week.

On the year, Garcon has eight catches and 153 yards to go with one touchdown.

Hernandez also reported that Fred Davis would undergo surgery for his torn achilles tendon in Charlotte.
