ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan says receiver Pierre Garcon and cornerback Josh Wilson are recovering from offseason surgeries.
Shanahan revealed Thursday that Garcon had a procedure for what the coach called a ``chest'' injury suffered in the final game of the season. Garcon has not been cleared to take part in the full offseason practices and instead has been catching passes from Robert Griffin III, who is recovering from a knee injury.
Garcon led the Redskins with 633 yards receiving last year despite being limited by a painful toe.
Shanahan said Wilson had surgery to repair a nagging shoulder injury.
Shanahan said both players are progressing well but wouldn't say whether either would be ready for the start of training camp in late July.
