Redskins lose Smith for season to broken leg; Mariota hurt

Redskins lose Smith for season to broken leg; Mariota hurt

Smith waved to the crowd as he left the field.

Washington will be without its starting quarterback for the rest of the season.

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.

One person who had a front row seat to the injury was Texans All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt, who knows a thing or two about dealing with tough injuries.

Theismann, who led the Redskins to the Super Bowl title back in 1983, suffered one of the most famous injuries in sports history when his leg snapped following a sack by legendary Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor. Luckily for Smith, though, science and medicine have progressed significantly in the three decades since Theismann's injury, which should give him a better chance of making a full recovery. "The defense did a good job and the offense did just enough".

Prosecutors Mistakenly Reveal Criminal Charges Against Julian Assange
Julian Assange makes his way back indoors after speaking to the media from the balcony of the Embassy Of Ecuador on May 19, 2017. The filing in the Eastern District of Virginia came on August 22, in a case that combines national security and sex trafficking.

"We just have belief", Watson said. "They have a strong belief in each other and came up big in the end".

In nine games on the season, Miller has rushed 611 yards on 145 carries and scored two touchdowns.

In his second game with the Texans, Demaryius Thomas was a non-factor. The Vikings saw former starter Case Keenum move to the Denver Broncos, the rival of the Chiefs, who were ready to jettison Smith after drafting Patrick Mahomes in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

With the NFC East struggling, the Redskins will look to create some separation and get a much needed win against the Texans. Both the Eagles and Dallas Cowboys have 4-5 records.
