Garçon hears from family in Haiti
Garçon said his mother heard from a family member on Wednesday night, and he received calls on Thursday morning, letting him know some of his relatives were safe.
Garçon attended high school in Florida, but his parents emigrated to the U.S. from Haiti, and most of his relatives still live there.
A visibly drained Garçon said many of his family members still are unaccounted for. He appreciates the outpouring of support for the nation, but says more help is needed.
The second-year player says it's difficult to focus on Saturday's playoff game against Baltimore, but it's "something you've got to do."
