Feb 17 6:53pm ET

Washington Redskins senior vice president of football operations Doug Williams said QB Alex Smith (leg) hopefully will be able to play at some point in 2019.

Fantasy Spin: Smith suffered a serious leg injury and there is still not definite timetable for his return. The Redskins likely will add at least one more quarterback this season, but owners in all fantasy leagues probably should avoid the Redskins quarterback situation next season.

Feb 12 3:23pm ET

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is not expected to play this season, in the opinion of RB Chris Thompson. 'We know and understand that it's probably not going to happen that we have him this year,' Thompson admitted. The Redskins have discussed a new deal with QB Josh Johnson, but QB Colt McCoy is slated to start the year if Smith can't go. Smith is in the midst of a an extensive recovery from a severe compound leg fracture late in the season.

Fantasy Spin: Honestly, Smith was the best fantasy option among Washington quarterbacks, although Johnson is capable of being fantasy relevant. Still, if you draft a Redskins quarterback this year, draft him as your backup.

Jan 31 8:33pm ET

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is making improvements but is not looking too far ahead in his rehab, according to team president Bruce Allen. Allen denied a recent report that stated the Redskins are preparing for Smith to miss the entire 2019 season.

Fantasy Spin: Smith likely will miss at least a portion of the 2019 season and could miss all of the games depending on his recovery. It is not known what the Redskins will do a quarterback next season, so owners in all leagues probably should avoid the situation during fantasy drafts.

Jan 29 6:00pm ET

The Washington Redskins promoted quarterbacks coach Kevin O'Connell to offensive coordinator on Tuesday and demoted former offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh to senior offensive assistant. Not much will matter if Washington doesn't have a capable quarterback under center in 2019. Alex Smith isn't expected to be available for most of the year, if not all of it, after breaking his leg in gruesome fashion last season. The 'Skins ranked 28th in yards per game (299.7), 28th in passing yards (188.8), 17th in rushing yards (110.9) and 29th in points per game (17.6) in 2018. Expect them to lean heavily on the running game once again with Derrius Guice hopefully healthy in time for the start of the season.

Jan 27 2:50pm ET

The Washington Redskins are planning to be without quarterback Alex Smith (leg) next season, according to sources. The team thinks he'll miss the entire season after suffering a gruesome broken leg last year and are acting accordingly. Smith will turn 35 this May, so it's fair to wonder if he will ever play again. It's not like he was exactly playing that well in his first season in D.C. before his injury, either. With just Josh Johnson and Mark Sanchez on the roster, the team will most certainly be in the mix for a quarterback this offseason, whether it be on the open market or through the draft.

Jan 27 2:13pm ET

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is tentatively not in the team's 2019 plans as the general feeling in the organization is that he'll miss the season with complications resulting from broken leg this past fall, sources said Sunday, Jan. 27.

Fantasy Spin: Washington is between a rock and hard place with Smith's big-$$$ contract and its need for a viable starting QB. Look for a free-agent signing a or a draft pick this offseason -- and maybe both. Sadly, meanwhile, don't be surprised if we've seen the last of Smith in the NFL as he'll turn 35 this May.

Jan 22 4:50pm ET

Washington Redskins general manager Bruce Allen said the team is "optimistic" that quarterback Alex Smith (leg) will be ready for the start of the 2019 season, but he also said "we'll see." In his first year with Washington, Smith was a disappointment, throwing for 2,108 yards, 10 touchdowns and five interceptions with an 85.7 QB rating in 10 games before his gruesome leg injury. He'll be heading into his age-35 season and is unlikely to be ready for training camp or the regular season, so he's one to avoid for fantasy purposes. The 'Skins are in dire need of a long-term quarterback.

Jan 21 6:23pm ET

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) was seen wearing a special leg brace Monday, Jan. 21. Smith underwent multiple surgeries on a broken fibula and tibia in addition to dealing with infections as a result of complications from the surgeries.

Fantasy Spin: Smith and his leg have a long road ahead of them. His status for the 2019 season seems doubtful given the severity of the injury and the extensive recovery. If the Redskins don't sign or draft a quarterback, Colt McCoy figures to start assuming he makes a full recovery from a broken leg. He is not a realistic fantasy option.

Dec 16 12:50pm ET

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith (leg) was finally released from the hospital on Sunday after spending multiple days in the hospital and going through several surgeries to combat infection in his broken right leg. There is optimism but no certainty that Smith will be able to play football again. If Smith can't play again, the Redskins would have to eat $20.4 million in salary cap space next year and $21.4 million in 2020. Colt McCoy also broke his leg on Dec. 3, and the team is now down to Josh Johnson under center after benching Mark Sanchez last week. As a result, Washington's offense has become a wasteland for fantasy owners to close out the season.

Dec 16 9:23am ET

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) has been released from the hospital after undergoing multiple surgeries on his broken leg and battling an infection in the leg, according to multiple league sources.

Fantasy Spin: There is optimism that Smith will be able to play again, so fantasy owners should monitor this situation throughout the offseason. When healthy, he should be viewed as a QB2, although he is unlikely to go undrafted in most leagues in 2019 due to the severity of the injury.

Dec 9 1:10pm ET

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith (leg), who remains in the hospital after needing additional surgeries to fight an infection in his surgically repaired broken leg, is unlikely to be ready for the start of the 2019 season. Mark Sanchez isn't the answer next year to begin the year, so the 'Skins will need to look for another signal caller in the offseason. Smith wasn't having a very good year in his first year in D.C. and won't be attractive to fantasy owners heading into next year after a gruesome leg break that could be career-threatening.

From RotoBaller

Dec 9 11:13am ET

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is still in the hospital because of the infection in his leg and likely will not be ready to play at the start of the 2019 season.

Fantasy Spin: It is not known if Smith will be able to play again, so owners will need to monitor the situation during the offseason. He is a solid No. 2 fantasy quarterback when he is healthy but likely will not be selected in drafts next season.

Dec 6 2:43pm ET

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) may not play in the NFL again after breaking his right tibia and fibula in Week 11. As reported earlier, Smith is dealing with an infection due to complications from surgery.

Dec 6 1:00pm ET

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith (leg) is now battling an infection related to the surgery he underwent to fix a broken fibula and tibia, according to sources informed of the situation. It's unclear if the infection will jeopardize the rest of Smith's playing career at this time. Smith wasn't playing at his best this year in his first year in Washington, but the terrible injury could make it tough for him to play in the NFL again when he'll turn 35 next May. Colt McCoy also fractured his leg on Monday night, forcing Mark Sanchez into the starting role over the final four games of the season.

From RotoBaller

Dec 6 11:33am ET

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is battling an infection related to the surgery he had on his broken fibula and tibia, according to sources. The situation is being treated seriously.

Fantasy Spin: It's obviously a gut-wrenching reality that a potentially career-threatening injury just became more serious. Everyone is pulling for him in his recovery. However, in an attempt to get back to business - Smith is a QB2 for next year's drafts. If you thought about keeping him in a full dynasty, this news obviously hinders that thought process.

Nov 19 4:53pm ET

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 19.

Nov 19 3:13pm ET

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) underwent successful surgery on his broken leg Monday, Nov. 19, according to head coach Jay Gruden. He is expected to make a full recovery in a span of six to eight months.

Fantasy Spin: Colt McCoy will quarterback the Redskins going forward, with Mark Sanchez serving as the backup. Smith can be safely dropped in traditional leagues, while McCoy is not worth picking up in non-superflex leagues.

Nov 19 10:53am ET

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) had surgery to repair a broken tibia and fibula Sunday, Nov. 19. He's out for the season.

Fantasy Spin: Colt McCoy takes over, and he's a pickup in two-QB leagues only.

Nov 18 5:43pm ET

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) suffered a broken fibula and tibia during the Week 11 game and will need to undergo surgery, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Spin: Smith likely will miss the rest of the season, so Colt McCoy should be the starting quarterback moving forward. McCoy was solid after replacing Smith in the Week 11 game but should only be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Nov 18 3:13pm ET

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 11 game and will not return.

Fantasy Spin: Smith may have suffered a serious injury, so owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days to find out the severity of the injury. Colt McCoy likely would take over the starting job if Smith misses time but would not be a great fantasy option.
