Alex Smith shows up to OTAs to support Redskins teammates
Alex Smith may not be able to play at any point in 2019 after he suffered a devastating knee injury last season, but the veteran quarterback is still making an effort to spend time with his teammates.
On Thursday, the Washington Redskins shared some photos of Smith at organized team activities. He chatted with teammates and coaches and even threw some passes, which was a welcome sight.

It’s possible that Smith will never play for Washington again after they drafted former Ohio State star quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the first round, and he obviously know that. Smith turned 35 this month, which means he’s entering the twilight of his career even without the questions surrounding his recovery from a horrific injury.
Smith being around the team is a good sign, and there have been reports that his injury is not considered career-threatening. Hopefully he’s able to play again in 2020, whether it’s in Washington or somewhere else.
