Redskins QB Alex Smith endures season ending injury

Alex Smith being carted off

On Sunday, the Washington Redskins suffered a devastating blow, as their new franchise quarterback Alex Smith was carted off the field after going down with a gruesome leg injury.

Smith's right foot and ankle bent in an awkward direction as J.J. Watt and Kareem Jackson sacked him midway through the third quarter.

Smith waved to the crowd as he was carted to the locker room.

Floersch took to Twitter to confirm that she was okay and to thank everyone involved for their support. Another driver, a marshal and two photographers were also taken to hospital following the crash.

After Washington initially classified it as an ankle injury, coach Jay Gruden confirmed after the game that Smith had broken his tibia and fibula and would need immediate surgery. Most of the players from the Texans' sideline came over to him as well. These things happen in pro football, unfortunately. Veteran reserve Colt McCoy replaced Smith.

The Redskins traded for Smith in the offseason, sending a third-round pick and corner Kendall Fuller to Kansas City. Leonard Fournette ran for 95 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries but Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger overcame a slow start to throw for 314 yards and two touchdowns before diving in for the game-winner himself with five seconds left.

"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.

Can Trump quash the White House press corps?
The White House responded that it would come up with a code of conduct for the press at briefings, which hadn't existed before. Trump later called Acosta's behaviour distracting and disrespectful. "You have to practise decorum", he added.

The Redskins have lost their starting quarterback for the rest of the season.

The Cowboys squandered a 10-point, fourth-quarter lead, but grabbed the win when Brett Maher booted a 42-yard field goal with no time remaining and Dallas improved to 5-5 on the season. "So we'll see how he does", Gruden said.

Redskins legend Joe Theismann soon weighed in - posting on Twitter that Smith's injury was reminiscent of his own in 1985.
