Redskins' Alex Smith: Unlikely for start of 2019 season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith isn't expected to be ready to play at the start of the 2019 season while he continues to recover from an infection stemming from his multiple surgeries to address a broken fibula and tibia in his right leg, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Smith remains hospitalized after experiencing complications from the procedures he required to address the gruesome injury he sustained Nov. 18 against the Texans. The quarterback was always set to face a lengthy rehab regardless, but the infection has added another layer of concern that could threaten Smith's availability not just for 2019, but for the remainder of his career. After trading for Smith last March and signing him to a four-year, $94 million contract, the Redskins could be in the market for a new starting quarterback in free agency or the draft this offseason if they're not confident the 34-year-old will be able to return to his previous form.

Redskins' Alex Smith: Battling complications from surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith developed an infection after undergoing surgery in November to address a broken fibula and tibia in his right leg, sources informed Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Smith isn't far enough removed from surgery yet for doctors to give a prognosis, but the infection could provide additional complications in his recovery from an injury that was already being viewed as a threat to end his career. The quarterback is expected to receive regular treatment over the next several months to remove the infection and hopefully improve his long-term outlook, but his playing future very much hangs in the balance. The Redskins also lost Smith's replacement -- Colt McCoy (lower leg) -- to a potential season-ending injury in the Week 13 loss to the Eagles, leaving Mark Sanchez next in line to direct the offense.

Redskins' Alex Smith: Playing future in jeopardy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins are optimistic that Smith (lower leg) will be able to resume his career in 2019, though doctors are maintaining a "wait-and-see" attitude with regards to the quarterback's future outlook, sources tell Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The 34-year-old suffered one of the more gruesome-looking injuries in recent memory in the Redskins' Week 11 loss to the Texans, with doctors ultimately diagnosing him with a fractured tibia and fibula in his right leg shortly after he was carted off the field. According to Schefter, Smith's injury included the bone breaking through his skin, which could result in a longer rehab than what otherwise might be associated with such an injury. For what it's worth, coach Jay Gruden recently estimated Smith's timeline for recovery at 6-to-8 months, though it would be surprising if the veteran were on the field for the start of training camp next summer. While Smith is out for at least the remainder of 2018, the 6-5 Redskins will cast their lot with Colt McCoy under center as they look to hold off Dallas (6-5) and Philadelphia (5-6) for the NFC East crown.

Redskins' Alex Smith: May not be ready for 2019 opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (lower leg) will require 8-to-10 months to recover fully, which could impact his availability for Week 1 of the 2019 season, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Initially expected to be sidelined 6-to-8 months, Smith's expanded recovery timetable may stem from what surgeons discovered during emergency surgery on Nov. 18. Among his fractures, he suffered compound and spiral breaks of the tibia and fibula in his right leg. Smith will have to regain motion in his ankle while strengthening his lower right leg before gaining medical clearance to play again. In the short term, the Redskins will trust Colt McCoy to fend off the rest of the NFC East in pursuit of a playoff spot.

Redskins' Alex Smith: Suffered compound, spiral fractures
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith's season-ending injury included compound and spiral fractures in his right leg, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

What was already known to be a gruesome injury became even more so following Schefter's report. While Smith is expected to require 6-to-8 months of recovery, the immediate concerns are the potential for infection and compartment syndrome, per Stephania Bell of ESPN. Beyond that duo, the biggest steps in Smith's rehab will be regaining full range of motion in his right ankle and strength in his lower right leg. With a long and winding road in front of him, he can at least look forward to a fully guaranteed base salary of $15 million for the 2019 campaign, even if he's not ready for Week 1. In the meantime, Colt McCoy will finish out the current season as the Redskins' starting signal-caller.
