On Sunday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported, the Redskins "are planning as if they won’t have QB Alex Smith next season."
On Thursday while speaking with the Redskins Talk crew, Redskins team president Bruce Allen wholeheartedly denied the report.
"It didn't come from the Washington Redskins, and it didn't come from the doctors," Allen told NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay and Mitch Tischler.
However, Allen was less certain on whether Smith would actually play in 2019.
"I didn't say that," Allen said when asked if there's a chance Smith suits up next season. "We're approaching this the same way Alex approaches a game, a game plan or an offseason, that's one day at a time. He's following the doctor's orders, he's got to follow the doctor's orders."
