    His mother's statement from another preview was this.........we're treating it life threatening and leg-saving in that order.

    I had a friend die from a similar infection that hid in his heart. This stuff is no joke.

    As a Smith fan, I was rooting for him to make it back to playing football. At this point, even though he wants to, I hope he does not play again. I just fear that leg would not hold up.

    Smith would probably be fine if Montana could survive the 80s with these legs: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EExN3PVW4AEOfGH?format=jpg

    All that calcified bone, new cartilage, and skin grafting probably made Smith's injured leg tougher but less flexible and mobile.

    Yeah definitely wasn't the faint of heart. I probably just would have told them to cut my leg off.

    I think the Theismann injury is more appropriate comparison- because it was basically the same injury- and he tried to come back but couldn't make it to the regular season.

    He's been helping out the Redskins last season though, and Dwayne Haskins said he was a huge help late in the year.

    I think Alex is gonna end up making a great OC/HC in about 6-10 years.

    Theismann didn't have an infection though, did he?

    That was far worse than the injury itself. Smith lost like half the tissue and muscle in his lower leg.
