Smith hasn’t thrown a pass in an NFL game since he suffered a horrific leg injury in 2018 during a game against the Texans.

It’s truly impossible to overstate how impressive Smith’s comeback has been. The man obliterated his leg two years ago.
It was one of the worst injuries we’ve ever seen in the history of sports, and I think it’s safe to say most of us assumed he’d never play again.
Alex Smith did QB drills and worked in pads today for the first time since his injury.

Then, Smith set out on a comeback journey that has been nothing short of absolutely incredible. Now, he’s ready to roll if he’s needed.
It’s been an incredible journey for Smith, and I speak for fans everywhere when I say we’re hoping like hell he gets in the game.
Alex Smith is back on the field for @WashingtonNFL.
