After infection and multiple surgeries on his broken leg, Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith has finally been released from the hospital.  

There is optimism that he’ll be able to continue his career, if he chooses to do so.  Recovery from the actual injury is Smith’s main focus right now.   


After spending days in the hospital and enduring multiple surgeries on his broken leg, Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith finally has been released — with an encouraging prognosis, no less — per league sources.

There is some optimism, but hardly certainty, that Smith will be able to resume his NFL career, though the priority for now is simply recovering from a spiral leg fracture that became infected after multiple surgeries.

That’s great news for Smith and hopefully the healing from the injury goes well.  If he wants to continue his career we hope he’s able to do so.
