Quarterback Alex Smith suffered a serious and gruesome leg injury on Sunday, one that undoubtedly will end his season.
According to CBS, the Washington starter has been taken to a local hospital by ambulance.
Whether precautionary or necessary, it’s a scary situation for Smith, and it’s a reminder of the risks that NFL players assume every time they participate in a practice or play in a game.
Smith, the first overall pick in the 2005 draft, is still only 34. He is signed through 2022 in Washington.
