Redskins WR Josh Morgan undergoes ankle surgery

Scott Rovak-US PRESSWIRE

It's been a surgery-filled off-season for the Redskins, who now see wide receiver Josh Morgan go under the knife.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan had right ankle surgery, according to the Washington Post.

Morgan, 27, had the procedure on Friday, with a return date uncertain right now. The Redskins' pass-catcher was finally healthy in 2012, playing in all 16 games and putting up a statline of 48 catches, 510 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

It was a bounce-back year for Morgan, who had only played five games in 2011 with the San Francisco 49ers due to torn ligaments and a broken right leg.

Morgan's best season came in 2010 for San Francisco, when he registered 698 yards and two scores on 44 receptions. Now with Washington, Morgan is a reliable receiver for quarterback Robert Griffin III and even led the team in receptions.

Assuming Morgan returns at full strength for 2013, he will be one piece of a nice receiving core including Pierre Garcon, Leonard Hankerson and Santana Moss.
