Washington quarterback Alex Smith, who suffered a devastating tibia and fibula fracture in 2018, has received clearance from his surgical team to return to full football activity.
Smith, who spoke to ESPN while filming an update for his E:60 documentary, “Project 11,” is going through COVID-19 testing and expects to report Monday to the team’s facility, where he will undergo a team physical.
Once there, the team is expected to determine the next steps for Smith’s eventual participation in training camp.
Smith and his family spent the past few months in Hawaii, where he continued to train and prepare for the coming season. While he could sense that he was continuing to progress as far as his strength, conditioning and agility were concerned, he said it was impossible for him to know just how well the bones in his right leg were healing.
