Repair of Flexor & Abductor tendons

I have a patient whose foot was lacerated by a boat propeller. The surgeon repaired the great toe flexor & the abductor.

I know 28200 is for the repair of the flexor tendon. But what should I use for the abductor tendon?

I was thinking 28899 as an unlisted procedure & like it to 28200 (Since both repairs are done in the same area)

I have DX codes: S91.312a (laceration of foot) , S96.022a (laceration flexor tendon), & S96.822a (laceration other tendon)

Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.
