WATCH: Alex Smith makes first public appearance since surgeries

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith was in attendance Monday to watch the Washington Wizards take on the Detroit Pistons. It marked the first public appearance since he underwent multiple surgeries following his gruesome broken leg.

My goodness that is a ton of hardware on his leg.

Clearly, Smith is a long way away from actively rehabbing his broken right leg. The injury was brutal to begin with, and then he suffered an infection following surgery. Multiple surgeries later, and it’s unknown if he’ll even be able to play football again.

One of the most widely respected veterans in the league, we wish Smith nothing but the best as he recovers.
