Alex Smith Ponders NFL Future

Washington QB Alex Smith will take time to ponder NFL future

Washington Football Team quarterback Alex Smith said he's going to take some time to ponder his future in the game.

Smith made an inspirational recovery from a devastating compound fracture suffered in a game against the Houston Texans in November 2018 -- one that required 17 surgeries to treat the injury and a life-threatening infection -- to lead Washington's charge to the playoffs in 2020, but a calf injury kept him out of Saturday's wild-card loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He told reporters on Sunday that this season was a thrill.

"I had so much fun this year, especially given all the COVID stuff," he said. "But to be back in the locker room, to be on the field with the guys, to be playing a game I love and to lose yourself in it, it's one of the greatest feelings in the world. You cannot duplicate it outside of here.

"And for me, I'm going to take a few weeks. My wife has been through a lot and my family, certainly I'm going to take their input. But that's something that right now I'm still just living in the moment and not getting ahead of myself. That is for another time and place."

Smith, 36, was 5-1 as the starter on a team that finished 7-9 -- good enough to win the NFC East. Washington started the season with Dwayne Haskins at quarterback, then turned to Kyle Allen, who went down with a season-ending dislocated ankle in Week 9.
