Redskins Quarterback Alex Smith suffers season-ending gruesome injury v Texans

Redskins quarterback Alex Smith left the game against the Houston Texans after suffering a gruesome leg injury in the third quarter of the game.

Texans All-Pro defensive end JJ Watt, who was the one who inadvertently caused the injury, was one of the first to give Smith his best wishes in what was a classy display of sportsmanship. CBS Sports reported that the 34-year-old was taken to a local hospital by ambulance.

Reid's 101-yard interception return touchdown was the big play Houston needed to overcome a mistake-prone Deshaun Watson and beat the Washington Redskins 23-21 on Sunday, tying the franchise record with their seventh consecutive victory.

Kelemete and Fulton have both been listed on the team's official injury report and played banged up in the past.

It's their first season since the 2011 campaign where they don't have Kirk Cousins in the Quarterback role, but they acquired Alex Smith to replace him.

Smith left after throwing for 135 yards and two interceptions.

McCoy tried to lead the Redskins to the go-ahead points, but their last drive stalled, and Dustin Hopkins tried a 63-yard field goal that fell well short. He waved to spectators as he was taken away.

To make matters worse, the Skins had more to be discouraged about later in the game after some questionable officiating likely affected the outcome at the end.

Now, the team will turn to backup QB Colt McCoy to lead the team in the near future.

"As soon as I felt like I was in leverage, I looked back to see if the quarterback threw the ball and the ball was already in the air and it was just floating up there for me", Reid said. "So we'll see how he does", Gruden said.
