Laveranues Coles played whole season with broken foot.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins receiver Laveranues Coles said Wednesday he has played nearly the entire season with a stress fracture in his foot.


The injury, which has bothered Coles since September, has made it painful to run routes, but it hasn't stopped him from being one of the team's most valuable assets in a dismal year. Coles leads the Redskins (5-9) with 69 catches for 1,023 yards.


"I tried to keep it under wraps," Coles said. "Because as a football player, I feel there should be no excuses. When you step on the field, you have to perform. If I was man enough to step out there, I'm man enough to take the responsibilities that come with it. I didn't really want to make a big issue of it."


Coles will play the final two games, but said he will have to wear a cast for four to eight weeks once the season is over. If the foot hasn't healed by then, he might have surgery.


Coles has missed several practices in recent weeks, with coach Steve Spurrier referring to the injury as a "turf toe." Coles hasn't missed a game, but his production has declined. He hasn't had a 100-yard game since Nov. 9, and he was held without a catch for the first time this season in Sunday's 27-0 loss to Dallas, a game in which the Redskins completed just seven passes.


Coles was the Redskins' biggest offseason acquisition. He signed a seven-year, $35 million deal with a $13 million signing bonus as a free agent from the New York Jets.

Wow. I guess that explains why he was such a stud the first couple of games and then faded a little.

I'm sure he didn't get you -9 points. fundamentally, it takes 2 to make a catch a passerr and a receiver, so don't blame coles for your lame FF teams, if you're relying on one guy (especially redskins) then blame yourselves :-t

What the hell is going on over their in DC? Seems like a bunch of guys are finding out they have broken feet i.e. Ramsey. Weird. I don't blame Coles, I blame the play calling. I really think Spurrier sucks. He needs to go back to college were he can work on ending young kids careers with the fun and gun crap!

same reason hasslesuck had a .01? QB rating, he can't/couldn't throw in foul weather, it was painful to watch and to sit in the miserable rain and watch it, made it 100 times worse. I don't think any skin caught a ball besides flemister who fumbled his
