    Ashburn, Va. • Washington team officials have asked for privacy for Alex Smith and his family amid reports the quarterback is dealing with complications from surgery to repair a broken leg.

    In a statement released Thursday, the team says it appreciates concerns about Smith's injury that occurred Nov. 18 against Houston and that the 34-year-old and his family remain strong. A team spokesman declined to say whether Smith was still in the hospital more than two weeks after surgery to repair a broken right tibia and fibula.

    Coach Jay Gruden said Nov. 19 he expected Smith to make a full recovery and be out six to eight months. NFL Network and Washington’s FM-106.7 reported Thursday that Smith is still battling infection in his right leg and being tended to by doctors.

    I'm not sure people realize just how serious this is. It may even come to the point where amputating his leg at the knee is the only option left, this happened to a relative of mine after he fell out of a tree and broke his leg in the same spot and they couldn't get the infection under control.

    By all accounts, A Smith is known to be a very classy guy. I wish him and his family the best.
    Welchers are the worst.
