Redskins quarterback Alex Smith left the game against the Houston Texans after suffering a gruesome leg injury in the third quarter of the game.

Soon after the conclusion of the contest, it was announced by Redskins' head coach Jay Gruden that Smith suffered a fractured fibula and tibia, which will require season-ending surgery. Players from both teams took knees while Smith was treated. The 34-year-old waved to the FedEx Field crowd as he was driven away.

Veteran reserve Colt McCoy replaced Smith. Redskins legend Joe Theismann had his leg broken on November 18, 1985. Afterwards, Smith fell awkwardly on his leg. Entering Sunday's game, Smith had completed 64.1 percent of his passes for 2,045 yards as well as 10 touchdowns and three interceptions.

Washington lost the game 23-21 to fall to 6-4 on the season.
