Here’s an update from the UW sports information department regarding starting center Juan Garcia, who suffered a potentially carrer ending foot injury during spring practice.
Shortly after the injury, Garcia decided against immediate surgery and in favor of rest and rehabilitation, which he felt was his best chance of playing a meaningful role in the 2008 footballs season:
Here’s the update from UW:
Juan visited with a specialist on Tuesday and the doctors remain optimistic that the conservative approach toward recovery is progressing as expected. They are remaining with the rehabilitation schedule that was prescribed at the early stages of his injury. The cast on his foot has been removed and he will bear partial weight on the foot over the next four weeks. After that period, he will be able to put full weight on his foot. He will remain on crutches the next few weeks in order to keep his full weight off the injured foot.
