Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon had surgery for a torn labrum after the season but his recovery has been "unbelievable," coach Mike Shanahan said Thursday.

Shanahan described the surgery as a "chest" procedure during his news conference Thursday. But in an interview with ESPN's "NFL Live" on Thursday, Garcon said the surgery was actually on his labrum, a type of cartilage in the shoulder joint. He didn't specify which shoulder was injured.

"It was a small surgery; it wasn't nothing major," Garcon told ESPN.

Garcon caught passes Thursday from quarterback Robert Griffin III, who is recovering from surgery to repair ligaments in his right knee. The two players worked with a group of players practicing apart from the rest of the team.

Shanahan said he expects Garcon to be cleared for training camp.

"I think Pierre, his rehab has been unbelievable," Shanahan said. "Anytime you get operated on like he did and you're able to come back as quickly as he has, I was watching him this morning in the weight room, and he was lifting weights that he shouldn't be able to lift.

Updating a previous item, Pierre Garcon underwent "minor" labrum surgery in January.
Coach Mike Shanahan initially said Garcon underwent "chest" surgery. The labrum is part of the shoulder. Garcon is reportedly healthy right now, but he isn't participating in team drills at OTAs as a "precaution." Entering his age-27 season, Garcon should be all systems go for training camp.

Update:

Pierre Garcon cleared for full action following shoulder rehab
By Mike Jones, Published: July 18 at 12:11 pm


Wide receiver Pierre Garcon received clearance to practice fully when the Washington Redskins report to Richmond for training camp next week, a person with knowledge of the situation said Thursday.

Garcon, who earlier this offseason had surgery to repair the labrum in his right shoulder, had a checkup with Dr. James Andrews earlier this week and received a clean bill of health.

Garcon missed all of Washington’s offseason practices while recovering from the shoulder surgery. But he worked on the side with quarterback Robert Griffin III, catching passes from the quarterback during each offseason practice session.

Garcon at the time expressed confidence that he would be ready to go at the start of training camp.

The shoulder is good,” Garcon said in June. “There shouldn’t be any worries for me for the season coming up. So it should be good to go.”

Last season, after signing as a free agent in the spring of 2012, Garcon recorded a team-leading 633 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 10 games. He missed time because of torn ligaments in the second toe of his right foot – an injury that made it painful for him to push off, sprint or change directions – but finished off the second half of the season on a strong note after managing to play through the pain.
