After a likely season-ending injury to Kyle Allen, Alex Smith returned to the starting role for the Washington Football Team. This is the 36-year-old’s second appearance of the season.
He also played in the team’s Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He had just 37 yards after coming into that game.
Smith threw his first touchdown pass on Sunday since the 2018 NFL season. When he was seriously injured in November 2018 against the Houston Texans, it appeared like he would never get to play the game again.
He also lost his leg due to infections following his surgeries on his severely injured leg. Yet, this summer, he was both cleared by his own doctors and the doctors of the Washington Football Team cleared him to return.
Early in the fourth quarter, Alex Smith hit Terry McLaurin for a 68-yard touchdown reception. It was his first touchdown pass in nearly two years.
Before hitting McLaurin for the touchdown reception, Smith hit Josh Doctson for a six-yard touchdown reception in a 16-3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, November 11th, 2018, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
Smith went 24 of 32 for 325 yards in the 23-20 loss on Sunday to the New York Giants. He had the aforementioned one touchdown pass and three interceptions.
Head coach Ron Rivera will have to decide if it’ll be Smith or Dwayne Haskins leading the team moving forward. Haskins is in Rivera’s doghouse.
