Alex Smith Leaves Washington’s Game With Right Leg Issue
AP – Quarterback Alex Smith left Washington’s game against San Francisco with an unknown issue with his right leg and was questionable to return.
That’s the leg Smith broke in two places in November 2018, sidelining him for nearly two calendar years and requiring 17 surgeries to repair.
Smith was 8 for 19 for 57 yards and an interception in the first half.

He walked to the locker room in the final minute of the second quarter, giving way to Dwayne Haskins, who knelt down to run out the clock for the half.
With regards to Alex Smith's leg injury, WFT coach Ron Rivera says Smith developed soreness & tightness as he was trying to push off, xrays negative, but soreness & tightness remained, so out of "abundance of caution" they kept him out of 2nd half. More on Smith @footballnightsd
