The Facts: NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that Smith, who sustained a broken fibula and tibia and is now battling an infection, is still in the hospital and is not expected to be able to return for the start of the 2019 campaign. "No one has been able to definitively say he is going to play football going forward," Rapoport added.
Diehards Line: The bleak reality of the situation is that Smith's career, which has spanned 14 seasons thus far, is in doubt. Smith's injury came Nov. 18 against the Texans and, following surgery, he began battling an infection. In his first season with the Redskins, Smith threw for 2,180 yards and 10 touchdowns in 10 games. This is something we'll be watching over the offseason.
