Redskins’ Alex Smith’s wife posts touching video of one-year anniversary of gruesome leg injury
Although the Washington Redskins are still in the midst of a disappointing 2019 NFL season, this part of the year conjures up different emotions for quarterback Alex Smith. That is because it was on this day last year that he suffered a gruesome, career-threatening leg injury.
The road to recovery has been a long and difficult one for Smith. His wife provided a behind-the-scenes look at the progress he has made along the way, via Instagram:
The video gives a look at one of the most overlooked aspects that come when a player suffers such a devastating injury. Not only are the players’ lives severely impacted both on and off the field, but so are their families’.
It remains to be seen whether or not Smith will ever be able to play again. Fortunately, it is clear that he has quite the supporting cast rallying behind him and the progress he has made in his recovery will pay huge dividends long after his career is over.
