Alex Smith Player Overview

Smith lost just 2 games to injuries across 5 seasons as the Chiefs' starter: 1 for a 2016 concussion, and another for a lacerated spleen at the end of 2014. Smith has stayed notably healthy otherwise despite ranking 3rd among QBs in rushing attempts over that span. The move to Washington should mean an O-line upgrade, as long as those blockers stay healthy. Washington watched 4 of 5 starters up front lost at least 1 game to injury in 2017.
