After one of the worst leg injuries in recent history, Washington Football Team (I still can't get over this name) quarterback Alex Smith is healthy again and working out. But with Dwayne Haskins at the helm in Washington, how much of a chance does Smith really have? According to new head coach Ron Rivera, he'll be right in there, as long as he's healthy.
I love a good comeback story as much as anyone else, but I cannot be the only one will without a doubt outwardly cringe every time Smith gets hit, right?
I think Smith is a good mentor-type guy -- someone who can sit in meetings, offer advice, run a few drills. I'm not so sure how I feel about him being thrown back into the actual competition. I'm not saying he can't still play, or he shouldn't get the chance to. I just think being a family man here is the best choice for him.
On the flip side, if Smith does play and play well, it will be the best comeback story of all time.
