LaRon Landry fought an Achilles problem all season long, and it ultimately forced him to go to injured reserve, ending her season early. Yesterday we relayed a report saying that Landry decided that he would not have surgery to fix the problem, but it turns out that the decision has not yet been reached.
Just reached LaRon Landry via phone. Says he hasn't made a decision on surgery yet. He's waiting to see how Achilles responds to treatment.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 23, 2012
He continued. . .
..Landry hopes to know within the next 6 weeks whether or not he will need surgery. He is hoping his Achilles responds to new treatment.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 23, 2012
In six weeks the Redskins will be making free agent decisions and starting to look ahead towards the draft. The health of Landry moving forward, and what the Redskins choose to do with him, will be one of the more important stories to emerge from this offseason.
