Almost exactly one year ago, Redskins quarterback Alex Smith's life changed forever.
On November 18, 2018, Smith suffered a gruesome leg injury in the third quarter of the Redskins clash with the Texans, ending his season and putting his football career in jeopardy.
The quarterback's road to recovery has been far from smooth. He's had multiple surgeries on his leg and was forced to wear a metal fixator for several months. But Smith has never given up, with the goal to eventually play football again.
On the one year anniversary of his injury, Smith's wife, Elizabeth, posted on Instagram a motivational montage showing how far Smith's recovery has come.https://www.instagram.com/p/B5Bc0cwJ7eu/
Although he hasn't played at all in 2019, Smith has been around the Redskins plenty. He made the trip down to Richmond for training camp, he's a regular at practice, and has served as a mentor for Redskins rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins.
What the future holds for Smith football-wise still remains uncertain, but he's done everything he can to help the team while sidelined.
