Redskins' Alex Smith

Alex Smith’s Wife Elizabeth Shares Inspiring Video Of QB’s Rehabilitation One Year After Leg Injury

Any NFL fans who have been wondering how Alex Smith has been doing since his gruesome leg injury last year got their answer on Monday.

The Redskins quarterback’s wife Elizabeth posted an Instagram video on the one-year anniversary of Smith’s devastating fibia and tibia injury, which came in his first season with the Redskins in a matchup against the Houston Texans and sidelined him for the rest of the season. The short clip showed photos and videos of the QB’s rehabilitation from the injury, including his progress with walking and training.

November 18th… 1 Year and so much to be grateful for🙏🏼

“November 18th… 1 Year and so much to be grateful for,” Elizabeth Smith captioned the video, adding the praying/thankful hands emoji.

SPORTS FIGURES WHO DIED IN 2019 – TRIBUTE SLIDESHOW 

According to For The Win, Alex Smith has undergone 17 surgeries over the last year, so his recovery process is especially admirable for that reason alone.

Many NFL pundits and fans compared Smith’s injury from last year — which occurred after he was sacked by Kareem Jackson — to one former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann sustained in 1985 when former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor sacked him. In June, Smith told NFL.com he felt confident he could still play despite his injury.

“That’s the plan,” the former first-round draft pick said at the time. “That’s the plan. Steps. I’ve got to conquer some more steps before I get there. Learn to run again. That’s a big one. I’m already throwing. I already feel like throwing is not a problem. I feel like I can throw. But dropping, moving around, all that kind of stuff, change of direction.”

Redskins fans will surely love to see Smith back in action, as the team has struggled this season. Washington is 1-9 and fourth in the NFC East, and saw head coach Jay Gruden fired after an 0-5 start. The Redskins have also seen ineffective performances from veteran quarterbacks Case Keenum and Colt McCoy and rookie Dwayne Haskins, a first-round draft pick out of Ohio State.
