NFL world sends well-wishes to Alex Smith

Alex Smith suffered a gruesome leg injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Texans.

On the field, players from both teams went up to the veteran quarterback to offer an encouraging word as he was carted away with his leg in an air cast. 

Reaction poured in immediately across Twitter - including a chilling reminder from Joe Theismann about his own brutal injury.

The Redskins' free agency strategy nets more 2019 compensatory picks than expected

It's a very small consolation, but on Friday, the Redskins finally picked up their compensatory third-round pick for losing Kirk Cousins in free agency last year.

That's not the only new selection they now have in their arsenal for the 2019 NFL Draft, though.

In addition to that third-rounder, Washington also netted a fifth-rounder, a sixth-rounder and a seventh-rounder, too. The four picks is a bit of a surprise, as most expected the Burgundy and Gold would be awarded with only three.

Bruce Allen has explained in the past how the 'Skins value compensatory picks, which teams receive based on the contracts their own free agents sign with new franchises. Last offseason, the Redskins saw Cousins, Ryan Grant, Spencer Long and Trent Murphy all cash in on the open market.

In total, Washington now has nine picks in the upcoming draft, with two each in the third, fifth and seventh rounds. They traded away their fourth-round spot for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

Losing homegrown players like Cousins and Co. is certainly not ideal, but by letting those types of guys depart, the Redskins do set themselves up for more swings in April. 

That part of the strategy has paid off. The next step? Making those picks count.

Intense doesn't even begin to describe this video of Derrius Guice on the treadmill

Intense doesn't even begin to describe this video of Derrius Guice on the treadmill

For most humans, a workout on the treadmill consists of the following steps:

1) Get on with plans of running at a high speed for a long time. 

2) Realize three minutes in that you have no interest in running either at a high speed or for a long time because running on a treadmill is really one of the more awful things you can subject yourself to on this planet.

3) Get off.

On Friday, though, Derrius Guice shared something on Twitter that shows his attitude toward the treadmill is very different from most humans.

LOOK. AT. THIS. DAMN. VIDEO:

Judging by the speed and tilt of the machine, the Redskins' second-year RB turned every setting on that thing to its maximum number. Even the obnoxious overachievers at your gym don't have the courage to go above level 8.

Honestly, he's going so hard that you almost feel bad for the treadmill. Someone get that treadmill into an ice bath ASAP. 

Earlier this week, Guice provided an update on his comeback from a torn ACL, saying he's still "strong as an ox" and "getting it back." If this is what it looks like when he's "getting it back," what's it going to be like when he's fully gotten it back?
