Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network tweeted on Thursday: "Smith is battling an infection related to the surgery he had on his broken fibula and tibia, sources say". A team spokesman declined to say whether Smith was still in the hospital more than two weeks after surgery to fix a broken right tibia and fibula.
Sources told ESPN's Dianna Russini that there is concern that Smith, 34, is dealing with a career-ending injury after breaking the tibia and fibula in his right leg during a Week 11 loss to the Houston Texans on November 18. The Burgundy Blog, which covers the Washington football team, reported Wednesday night that Smith was dealing with a post-surgery infection. The report notes it's too early to tell what this means for his future on the field. "But it is being handled with care and dealt with seriously by doctors".
As the top two quarterbacks on Washington's roster, Alex Smith and Colt McCoy spent a lot of time together this season.

Chiefs Kingdom, please keep Smith and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he faces these complications and a long road to recovery.
