Alex Smith

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. In a tweet, the team described it as an ankle injury and that Smith would not return.

Smith's injury comes 33 years to the day in which New York Giants defensive star Lawrence Taylor broke Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann's leg, ending his career.

Smith was sacked by J.J. Watt and Kareem Jackson in the third quarter of the Redskins' 23-21 defeat to the Texans, with his right foot caught underneath him and being bent awkwardly.
