This was brutal to watch.
Washington Redskins quarterback, Alex Smith, suffered a gruesome injury yesterday against the Houston Texans, the kind of injury that can haunt a player for years after.
*VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED*
According to @IanRapoport, Smith broke both his fibula and tibia and was rushed into emergency surgery right after the injury.
What is crazy is that 33 years ago to the day, Joe Theismann suffered an identical injury while he was playing for the Redskins.
Here is the clip from The Blindside narrated by Sandra Bullock for reference. *Viewer Discretion Advised*
Prayers to Alex and his family and may he get healthy enough to be able to play the game that he loves again.
