However, while trailing 17-7 in the third quarter Washington's worst nightmare came to fruition as Smith suffered a nasty right ankle injury while being sacked by two Houston defenders. Colt McCoy will take over for Smith, as the 6-4 Redskins will likely sign a quarterback as well. Smith, who was immediately in devastating pain, was quickly carted off the field and was reportedly headed to surgery just minutes after his team's comeback bid fell short. Smith was tackled and landed awkwardly on his right leg, and it appeared as if the bone snapped.
