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

The Washington Redskins lost their starting quarterback, Alex Smith, on Sunday as he broke his tibia and fibula in his right leg while being sacked by Houston's Kareem Jackson. That occurred during a Thanksgiving Day game versus the New England Patriots on November 22, 2012; six years later to the day, he'll suit up for Washington for the first time when the Redskins play at Dallas.

The Washington Redskins are expected to sign free agent quarterback Mark Sanchez in a backup role, according to ESPN Insider Field Yates.

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that familiarity was part of the team's decision to go with Sanchez. The quarterback spent the 2017 season with the Bears, but didn't sign with anyone in 2018 until Washington came along.

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

In nine games, Smith has gone 193-of-301 for 2045 passing yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions.

McCoy moves from the backup role to starter for a playoff-bound team after the injury suffered by Alex Smith. An injury cost him the entire 2013 season, and the Jets cut him prior to the 2014 season.

Of course, you can't talk about Sanchez without talking about the butt-fumble and the butt-fumble is likely going to be a hot topic of conversation this week.

Washington will be playing on Thanksgiving, in the 4:30 p.m ET kickoff against the Dallas Cowboys.
