Alex Smith‘s wife shared photos of her husband taking some time out of his own recovery from a broken leg by visiting with wounded soldiers at the Center for the Intrepid last week and those snapshots showed that Smith is still wearing an external fixator over his cast.
That’s further sign that his chances of playing for Washington this season aren’t looking great. Running back Chris Thompson acknowledged as much recently, but senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams wasn’t willing to count Smith out during a recent appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio.
Williams is aware that no one can rule Smith in either and that means the team has to be prepared with other options at quarterback. Colt McCoy is on the roster and on track to return from a less severe break in his leg, but Williams said the team will be adding others.
