Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) said Saturday, Feb. 1, he's 'very much lucky to be alive' following his November, 2018 broken leg and subsequent infection. Smith is now past the health issues, and a return to the field is possible next season. 'There's enough there that I can go out there and play,' Smith said. 'Knowing that, yeah, failure is a possibility ... I need to prove that I can come back and play quarterback in the NFL, and if I can do that, that would be great and it'll get figured out.'
Huddle Up: Smith's progress this offseason will obviously be key, and we'll see how it shapes the D.C. QB outlook with Dwayne Haskins preparing for his sophomore season.

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) has attended all of the team's quarterbacks meetings during training camp, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'I think he's just a calming influence for them,' Gruden said of Smith. 'He's very supportive for each individual guy, he'll get on them when he needs to get on them a little bit, in a fun-loving kind of way but he's just a great presence to have in the quarterback room and we obviously welcome it whenever he wants to come in here.'
Huddle Up: Smith won't be playing in 2019 and maybe never will again, but the veteran could prove to be a big help to the development of rookie QB Dwayne Haskins.

Huddle Up: Smith has no fantasy value at this point, but we send our well wishes to him in his recovery from a devastating leg injury.

Washington Redskins senior vice president of football operations Doug Williams said QB Alex Smith (leg) hopefully will be able to play at some point in 2019.
Huddle Up: Smith suffered a serious leg injury and there is still not definite timetable for his return. The Redskins likely will add at least one more quarterback this season, but owners in all fantasy leagues probably should avoid the Redskins quarterback situation next season.

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is not expected to play this season, in the opinion of RB Chris Thompson. 'We know and understand that it's probably not going to happen that we have him this year,' Thompson admitted. The Redskins have discussed a new deal with QB Josh Johnson, but QB Colt McCoy is slated to start the year if Smith can't go. Smith is in the midst of a an extensive recovery from a severe compound leg fracture late in the season.
Huddle Up: Honestly, Smith was the best fantasy option among Washington quarterbacks, although Johnson is capable of being fantasy relevant. Still, if you draft a Redskins quarterback this year, draft him as your backup.
