Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith dealing with infection after multiple surgeries

Alex Smith

For it to happen to someone as likable and resilient as Smith, who has consistently beaten the odds to make something out of his slow-starting National Football League career, makes it even more tough to swallow.

Smith underwent surgery on his broken leg November 19 and initially was expected to need six to eight months to recover.

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith's road to recovery from a devastating leg injury appears to have gotten longer. Now, we may have a clearer idea of why things have gotten so complicated.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Smith is battling an infection in his leg as a result of surgery on his leg. Rapoport adds the infection is being dealt with seriously by doctors.

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden told reporters a day following the injury that Smith did not suffer any ligament damage and quoted a recovery timeframe of six to eight months.

Smith will likely need to undergo further procedures to treat the infection. Smith still approaches this with optimism about playing.

Smith was 6-4 as a starter when he went down with his injury.

Smith initially was replaced by quarterback Colt McCoy but he broke his leg Monday night against the Eagles, leaving Mark Sanchez as the team's top quarterback.

In 10 starts, Smith had 2,180 passing yards for 10 TDs and five INTs.
