Quarterback Alex Smith's Grotesquely Broken Leg Will Make You Wince Forever

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith bottom reacts after an injury during the second half of an NFL football game against the Houston Texans

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reported Monday that unemployed Colin Kaepernick still wants to play in the NFL, but it appears as though the opportunity in Washington was not presented to Kaepernick. Redskins passing game coordinator Kevin O'Connell was a backup quarterback for parts of three seasons with the Jets during Sanchez's time there.

Sanchez started as a rookie for the New York Jets after he was drafted No. 5 overall in 2009.

This comes following news that quarterback Alex Smith sustained a season-ending injury during Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.

Smith sustained the gruesome injury on a third-quarter sack in the Redskins' 23-21 loss to the Texans on Sunday, bringing up painful memories for Theismann, a Redskins legend.

While there are similarities between Smith's injury and the infamous Joe Theismann injury when he was sacked by Lawrence Taylor in 1985, there are some differences.

The topic is back in the forefront with the Washington Redskins needing help at quarterback.

McCoy will likely start against the Cowboys on Thursday at AT&T Stadium in a game that could put Dallas in first place in the NFC East.

The Sanchez signing will come at nearly the exact six-year anniversary of the Butt Fumble Game, which took place on the night of Thanksgiving in 2012.

Washington travels to Dallas to play Thanksgiving Day.
