Former Ute Alex Smith Spotted At Wizards Game
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Former Utah and current Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith was spotted at the Washington Wizards game against the Detroit Pistons wearing a large apparatus on his right leg.
The former Ute continues to rehab his broken tibia and fibula that he suffered on November 18 against the Houston Texans.
Smith was spotted in the owner’s suite at Capital One Arena watching the Martin Luther King Day matinee of NBA action.
He appeared to not require a wheelchair, or at least didn’t have one in the owner’s suite. Smith had two crutches next to him as he was sitting in a chair.
ESPN reported in December that Smith had to undergo multiple surgeries and was fighting an infection.

The Redskins and Smith’s family asked for privacy during his rehab with the big question still hanging out there, if he will play in 2019.
The Wizards beat the Pistons 101-87.
