Washington Redskins signing Mark Sanchez after losing Alex Smith

21 November 2018

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith appeared to suffer a severe injury in Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, forcing him to be carted off the field with a cast on his right foot. J.J. Watt and Kareem Jackson sacked Smith, but he went down awkwardly on his ankle.

It's their first season since the 2011 campaign where they don't have Kirk Cousins in the Quarterback role, but they acquired Alex Smith to replace him.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Smith would have surgery "right away".

Smith, 34, signed a four-year, $94 million deal (including $71 million in guarantees) in the offseason and his contract is such that the Redskins cannot easily get out from under it without taking a huge salary-cap hit, at least until after the 2020 season.

A week after Redskins cornerback Josh Norman criticized fans for not having players' backs at home and said the team plays better on the road, FedEx Field had plenty of good seats still available.

Reid's 101-yard interception return touchdown was the big play Houston needed to overcome a mistake-prone Deshaun Watson and beat the Washington Redskins 23-21 on Sunday, tying the franchise record with their seventh consecutive victory. "I worry less about Alex and his football career than I do Alex and wanting to be able to do the things in life he wants to do".

Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 22 of 30 passes for 363 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions as the Saints won their ninth straight game and improved to 9-1.

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

"I'm still just so upset", Theismann said.

Redskins legend Joe Theismann soon weighed in - posting on Twitter that Smith's injury was reminiscent of his own in 1985. "I feel so bad for him".
