Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith (leg), who suffered a gruesome leg injury in November of last year, said he wound up having 17 surgeries on his right leg. Smith developed an infection following an operation to fix the broken fibula and tibia he suffered against the Texans. The 35-year-old recently resumed throwing and hopes to return to the field again eventually, but it's a long shot that he'll be back in 2019. The fact that Smith has made it this far is even a minor miracle, and there's no guarantee he'll play another down in the NFL again. The 'Skins will move forward with Case Keenum under center for another week after getting their first win against the Dolphins in Week 6.
Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) was spotted on the practice field Monday, Oct. 14, by Ben Standig of The Athletic. Smith is 11 months removed from the leg injury which ended his 2018 season and threatens his career. The veteran was throwing a variety of routes with two team officials and was later seen with a compression sleeve on his leg.
Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) has attended all of the team's quarterbacks meetings during training camp, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'I think he's just a calming influence for them,' Gruden said of Smith. 'He's very supportive for each individual guy, he'll get on them when he needs to get on them a little bit, in a fun-loving kind of way but he's just a great presence to have in the quarterback room and we obviously welcome it whenever he wants to come in here.'
Fantasy Spin: Smith won't be playing in 2019 and maybe never will again, but the veteran could prove to be a big help to the development of rookie QB Dwayne Haskins.
Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg), DE Jordan Brailford (undisclosed) and CB Danny Johnson (undisclosed) were placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 24. RB Bryce Love (knee) has been placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list.
Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith (leg) is no longer wearing an external fixator on his surgically repaired right leg. He credited the fixator with allowing him "to heal and walk again." Although Smith is unlikely to play in 2019 or perhaps ever again in the NFL, this is a step in the right direction and some needed good news for the veteran signal-caller. The 'Skins drafted quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the first round, so Smith's future isn't in D.C. You can ignore him in upcoming fantasy drafts completely.
Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (knee) will no longer be required to wear the external fixator that he had worn for eight months since suffering his devastating knee injury in November of 2018.
Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) said he hopes to play football again, but he has more steps to conquer before that. Smith talked about an external fixator that came from Siberia that will 'save my leg, help me heal, allow me to walk again and hopefully play football again.'
Fantasy Spin: Smith has no fantasy value at this point, but we send our well wishes to him in his recovery from a devastating leg injury.
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that quarterback Alex Smith (leg) is "recovering nicely" and thinks Smith will be back sooner than people expect. Gruden also said that Smith "can play catch." Smith suffered a gruesome broken leg in 2018 that might keep him off the field in a regular season game for the rest of his career. There seems to be a chance that he'll be ready sometime this year, but it still feels like more of a long shot and optimistic thinking. Case Keenum and rookie Dwayne Haskins will battle for the Week 1 starting duties in training camp, with Haskins expected to make the majority of the starts this season.
Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) will need to wear the external fixator on his right leg for at least another month, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
