Alex Smith in emergency surgery, done for 2018

D.J. Swearinger is out for revenge against Texans

The Washington Redskins suffered a major setback Sunday, as quarterback Alex Smith was carted off the field with a gruesome ankle injury in the third quarter against the Houston Texans at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. He remained down on his back while getting medical attention before being carted off with his foot in a cast.

Washington coach Jay Gruden later said Smith is out for the year and had broken the tibia and fibula in his right leg.

Colt McCoy came on to replace Smith as the Redskins quarterback. However, while he has had multiple games to remember this season, Houston's Week 11 23-21 victory over Washington certainly wasn't one of them for Watt. He signed a four-year, $94m contract with the Redskins shortly after the trade.

The injury likely ends Smith's season.

Smith's injury comes 33 years to the day in which New York Giants defensive star Lawrence Taylor broke Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann's leg, ending his career.

Watt was involved in the play which resulted in Smith's injury and he took to Twitter after the game to share his thoughts about what transpired on the field today.

"But knowing the type of guy that he is, he'll bounce back". "I think as long as I approach it that way, things will happen like they're supposed to".

Washington still holds a one-game lead in the NFC East over the Dallas Cowboys, who the Redskins face on a short turnaround on Thanksgiving next Thursday. Before Smith was driven off the field, players from both teams left the sidelines to offer well wishes.

"This whole season, we've been about us and overcoming adversity", Peterson said. "So we'll see how he does", Gruden said.
