Washington quarterback Alex Smith will make his first start in a couple years this upcoming Sunday.

According to ProFootballTalk, Washington coach Ron Rivera told the media Sunday that Smith would be the man under center Sunday against the Lions. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Smith was pressed into action Sunday against the Giants after Kyle Allen suffered a brutal injury.

This upcoming Sunday will be Smith’s first start since he went down with a horrific leg injury against the Texans in 2018.

It’s crazy how far Alex Smith has come in the past couple years. When he went down against the Texans, it looked like he’d never play again.

His leg injury was one of the worst that we’ve ever seen in the history of the NFL.

Now, he’s not just back in the NFL, but he’s going to make his first start in a couple years. For a guy many people thought would never play again, it’s been one hell of a great comeback story.

Even though he’ll be playing against my team, I can’t wait to see what Smith can do on the field with Washington.

It’s been a hell of a comeback journey, and this upcoming Sunday will mark another big step forward.
