Tough way to go out

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, a comeback for Redskins quarterback Alex Smith is not a guarantee.  There is optimism, but at 34 and with a lengthy rehab process in front of him, Smith could call it a career.

Via ESPN:

Alex Smith's return to football is not a certainty, but there is optimism that the Washington Redskins quarterback will return from the spiral fracture in his leg in which the bone broke through his skin, sources tell ESPN.

Smith, 34, faces a lengthy rehab, and doctors are maintaining a wait-and-see attitude even though the Redskins believe he can make it back, according to sources. Smith broke the tibia and fibula in his right leg during last Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans.

It isn't how anyone pictures their career coming to an end, but Smith wouldn't be the first to retire following a devastating injury.  Even if he does return, there are no guarantees that he will be able to do the same things he did prior to the injury.
