Redskins quarterback Alex Smith nearly lost his life following a devastating leg injury back in November of 2018.  He underwent several surgeries, battle infection and doctors somehow managed to save his leg.

The recovery process has been a long one, but Smith has made incredible progress.  He still wants to play football and is making some real progress towards doing that.

Smith’s wife, Elizabeth, shared a video of that progress and it’s incredible.  She shared the video of him running and throwing passes on his 36th birthday.
