As if a rapidly deteriorating season could not get worse there are new reports today that Redskins QB Alex Smith is suffering from complications from his broken leg he sustained back in November. Smith is 34 and despite losing him for a season to this injury there was optimism that he could return sometime next year if he made a full recovery. That recovery window at a minimum is pushed back now as he has undergone several treatments already to combat the infection. The revelation could spell the end of Smiths career. We wish Alex the best and hope that he makes a full recovery. The team has asked for privacy on behalf of Smith and his family.
