Texans unofficial depth chart shows many players returning from injury

Alex Smith suffered two broken bones in his right leg in the third quarter against the Texans.

Seven minutes into the third quarter whilst on a third down, Smith got himself into trouble and was hounded down by Kareem Jackson and JJ Watt, and ended up being sacked.

Smith waved to the crowd as he was carted to the locker room.

Smith suffered a broken tibia and fibula in a 23-21 defeat against the Houston Texans on Sunday and was scheduled to undergo surgery right away.

Smith, 34, signed a four-year, $94 million deal (including $71 million in guarantees) in the offseason and his contract is such that the Redskins cannot easily get out from under it without taking a huge salary-cap hit, at least until after the 2020 season. Luckily for Smith, though, science and medicine have progressed significantly in the three decades since Theismann's injury, which should give him a better chance of making a full recovery.

"I'm still just so upset", Theismann said.
