Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith suffered an injury in the second half against the Houston Texans on Sunday. He suffered an ankle injury.
He was carted off the field in the third quarter.
Smith reportedly had his ankle snapped on the play. He had his leg rolled up on in a freak accident by Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.
After leaving the field, he went into the locker room. He was then transported to a local hospital, according to the Fox Sports in-game update.
This could a season-ending injury. If it is — and it is expected to be — the Redskins playoff hopes may have taken a huge hit.
The NFC East-leading signal-caller went 12 of 27 for 135 yards. Before his injury, he also had two interceptions, including a pick-six.
Colt McCoy replaces Smith as the Redskins starting quarterback. Washington could go with McCoy for the rest of the season.
The Redskins may be forced to look for help outside of McCoy this week. They play again on Thanksgiving against the Dallas Cowboys.
Smith is in his first-season with the Redskins after being acquired by the team in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs in the off-season.
The 34-year-old Seattle, Washington native has gone 205 for 328 for 2,180 yards. He also had 10 touchdowns and five interceptions before his injury.
