Redskins Quarterback Alex Smith suffers season-ending gruesome injury v Texans

Smith, 34, exited the team's game against Houston with 7:43 left in the third quarter after his leg was caught behind Kareem Jackson and J.J. Watt during a sack.

The severity of the injury was clear immediately, and Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Smith would need season-ending surgery "right away".

Smith signed a four-year, $94-million contract when he was traded to the Redskins in January. Luckily for Smith, though, science and medicine have progressed significantly in the three decades since Theismann's injury, which should give him a better chance of making a full recovery.

Smith became the Redskins new starting quarterback in a game of offseason musical chairs at the position that saw former Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins take a nice payday to switch to the Minnesota Vikings.

According to Pro Football Talk, Kaepernick does want to play again, but Washington is one of the spots he's least likely to land.

"As soon as I felt like I was in leverage, I looked back to see if the quarterback threw the ball and the ball was already in the air and it was just floating up there for me", Reid said. Colt McCoy, Washington's only other quarterback, replaced Smith in the third and threw a touchdown pass on the following series.
