Joe Theismann feels Alex Smith’s pain

Joe Theismann feels Alex Smith’s pain

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith appeared to suffer a severe injury in Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, forcing him to be carted off the field with a cast on his right foot.

In a odd and sad coincidence, Smith suffered the injury 33 years to the day that former Washington quarterback Joe Theismann's leg was broken during a "Monday Night Football" game against the New York Giants.

Alex Smith seemed to know immediately this was bad.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Smith would have surgery "right away". Smith's right leg turned the wrong way in eerily similar fashion to Joe Theismann's broken leg on a Lawrence Taylor sack exactly 33 years ago to the day. Smith was carted off the field with an air cast on his leg and was ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Alex Smith suffered a gruesome Injury against the Houston Texans in week 11 of the 2018 season.




According to Pro Football Talk, Kaepernick does want to play again, but Washington is one of the spots he's least likely to land. "Irrelevant" caught four passes for 49 yards starting in place of injured wideout Jamison Crowder and would have been the emergency QB had McCoy gone down.

The Redskins traded for Smith in the offseason, sending a third-round pick and corner Kendall Fuller to Kansas City. He had thrown two first-half interceptions Sunday, one returned 101 yards for a TD by Texans safety Justin Reid, as Washington fell behind 17-7.

The 6-4 Redskins now face a Thanksgiving showdown for the NFC East division lead against the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday.

Now Gruden will have a short week to help McCoy make his first National Football League start since 2014: Washington (6-4) plays at Dallas (5-5) on U.S. Thanksgiving Day with first place in the NFC East on the line.

"I'm still just so upset", Theismann said. In a tweet, the team described it as an ankle injury and that Smith would not return. "So we'll see how he does", Gruden said.
