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.

Feel awful about the Alex Smith injury but the resurgence of Colt McCoy’s career would be awesome to see— Malcolm E Carter (@MTreeC88) November 18, 2018
Notwithstanding that @PatrickMahomes5 was drafted to replace Alex Smith, Alex was a terrific mentor to Patrick - assuring him that he would never have to worry about him undercutting him - this speaks to that sportsmanship. https://t.co/vnnN2xRdKD— Amy Trask (@AmyTrask) November 18, 2018
