Redskins quarterback Alex Smith, who suffered a devastating leg injury in Week 11, is rumored to still be in the hospital because of a postoperative infection. This is unfortunate news if it’s true.
According to the Burgundy Blog, Smith will likely require re-intervention, including possibly “partial reconstruction.”
My curiosity about Alex Smith's silence evoked a tip, which prompted some research, which yielded more info, which feels solid. I'm told Smith indeed still in hospital with post-op infection. Will likely require re-intervention, incl possibly "partial reconstruction."

Let’s hope this clears up and Smith doesn’t require any further surgery. But if he does require partial reconstruction then it will obviously have impact on his recovery.
Beyond the recovery time, Smith’s career could be in jeopardy if there are further complications, especially if the complications require more surgery. That’s never a good thing.
