Washington Redskins free safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (20) consoles quarterback Alex Smith (11) after Smith's leg injury during an NFL football game against the Houston Texans, Sunday, Nov. 18, 2018, in Landover, Md.

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. As Smith left the field he waved to the crowd and put his hands together as if in a prayer.

Washington coach Jay Gruden later said Smith is out for the year and had broken the tibia and fibula in his right leg.

Former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann, who was in attendance, tweeted that Smith's injury occurred 33 years to the day that he broke his leg in a Monday night game on November 18, 1985, vs. the New York Giants.

Kelemete and Fulton have both been listed on the team's official injury report and played banged up in the past. "I worry less about Alex and his football career than I do Alex and wanting to be able to do the things in life he wants to do".

Colt McCoy now takes over for Washington as the presumed starter, while Smith must begin the mental and physical work of rehabbing from such a devastating injury.

Li said the former cricket star's visit would "further consolidate and develop the firm, enduring ties between our two countries". He conveyed his desire to work with him for strengthening Pakistan-China Strategic Cooperative Partnership for shared future.

Smith was in his first season with the Redskins after arriving in a trade from the Kansas City Chiefs. Leonard Fournette ran for 95 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries but Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger overcame a slow start to throw for 314 yards and two touchdowns before diving in for the game-winner himself with five seconds left.

Washington lost the game 23-21 to fall to 6-4 on the season. 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.

"But knowing the type of guy he is, I think he'll bounce back".

The injury likely ends Smith's season.

"We just have belief", Watson said.
