Joe Theismann feels Alex Smith’s pain

Alex Smith suffers gruesome ankle injury long-term status unknown			USA Today Sports

Redskins quarterback Alex Smith was carted off the field after being sacked midway through the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Texans.

Former Washington quarterback Joe Theismann also shattered his fibula and tibia in a stomach-churning injury 33 years to the day earlier against the New York Giants. "I know he would like it in different circumstances but things happen for a reason", Gruden said.

Smith, 34, underwent surgery at a nearby hospital, ESPN reported.

Colt McCoy replaced Smith and helped Washington score a pair of touchdowns despite it being the first time he had thrown passes in a regular-season game since 2015.

Now Gruden will have a short week to help McCoy make his first National Football League start since 2014: Washington (6-4) plays at Dallas (5-5) on U.S. Thanksgiving Day with first place in the NFC East on the line.

As if that coincidence wasn't freakish enough, Theismann was at FedEx Field on Sunday watching Smith play and saw the injury take place. Now, Washington has to move on and play Thanksgiving afternoon against the Dallas Cowboys, who find themselves with ample life in the East.
