Pro Football Doctor Doesn't Like Chances of Alex Smith Continuing to Play

Pro Football Doctor Doesn't Like Chances of Alex Smith Continuing to Play”

Smith made his return to the field for the first time in almost two years after Washington starter Kyle Allen was knocked out of the game in the second quarter.

With the Washington Football Team trailing to the Los Angeles Rams, head coach Ron Rivera put in Smith to give the team a spark.

The now 36-year-old quarterback completed a 6-yard screen pass to J.D. McKissic on his first snap since November 18, 2018.

Few quarterbacks really enjoy getting hit, but Alex Smith didn't mind it that much on Sunday. The Washington quarterback returned from a spiral leg fracture that required multiple surgeries to recover from.

The unexpected comeback tour started in August when Washington's medical team cleared Smith to come off the physically unable to perform list.

In the loss, the Washington Football team totaled 108 yards of offense, as Smith finished the day completing 52.9 percent of his passes for 37 yards while getting sacked six times.

"If Alex is healthy and continues to get healthy and we do activate him, he's going to be in the throes of this competition", Rivera said recently, per NBC Sports Washington.

After the game, Smith told reporters it felt "surreal" to be playing again after everything he's been through. He's made three Pro Bowls in his career, and he's thrown for more than 34,000 yards to go with 193 passing touchdowns.
