Washington quarterback Alex Smith used to be taken to the health center after being carted off the sphere with a leg damage on Sunday and no person who noticed the play when Smith were given harm might be stunned to be told how critically Smith used to be injured.
Washington head trainer Jay Gruden introduced after the sport that Smith broke his tibia and fibula. Gruden additionally mentioned that Smith must have speedy surgical procedure and the damage will carry an finish to his first season with the group.
The damage got here 33 years to the day that former Washington quarterback Joe Thiesmann suffered a in a similar fashion grotesque leg damage in a sport in opposition to the Giants. Thiesmann would by no means play once more and we indubitably hope that’s no longer the case for Smith.
Colt McCoy rallied Washington to a 21-20 lead after Smith used to be injured — that marked the primary lead exchange in a Washington sport this season — however the Texans recovered to kick a box purpose and dangle on for a win when Dustin Hopkins‘ 63-yard box purpose fell brief.
There’s no different quarterback at the Washington roster, so that they’ll be creating a roster transfer within the coming days as they are trying to make one thing in their 6-Four begin to the 12 months in spite of the lack of their beginning quarterback.
