Redskins quarterback Alex Smith left the game against the Houston Texans after suffering a gruesome leg injury in the third quarter of the game.

In a odd and sad coincidence, Smith suffered the injury 33 years to the day that former Washington quarterback Joe Theismann's leg was broken during a "Monday Night Football" game against the New York Giants.

Alex Smith's season is in danger of being over after he suffered an ugly injury Sunday afternoon.

Smith was then taken to a nearby hospital. This website is not intended for users located within the European Economic Area. Smith's right leg turned the wrong way in eerily similar fashion to Joe Theismann's broken leg on a Lawrence Taylor sack exactly 33 years ago to the day.

"I still have goosebumps", Theismann said per Roman Stubbs of the Washington Post.

Colt McCoy replaced Smith and threw for a touchdown pass and led a long scoring drive for Washington (6-4), which likely will have to rely on the journeyman quarterback the rest of the way.

'Multiple victims' after gunman opens fire at Chicago hospital
Maria Correa was at the hospital for her mother-in-law's appointment with a doctor. "They told us to run, so we did". A gunman has reportedly opened fire at the campus of Mercy Hospital in Chicago , CBS Chicago reports.

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.

Smith left after throwing for 135 yards and two interceptions. Entering Sunday's game, Smith had completed 64.1 percent of his passes for 2,045 yards as well as 10 touchdowns and three interceptions.

A week after Redskins cornerback Josh Norman criticized fans for not having players' backs at home and said the team plays better on the road, FedEx Field had plenty of good seats still available. "I feel absolutely awful for him".

"As soon as I felt like I was in leverage, I looked back to see if the quarterback threw the ball and the ball was already in the air and it was just floating up there for me", Reid said.

"We just have belief", Watson said.
