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.”
