Alex Smith On Playing Again: 'That's The Plan'

Jun 21, 2019 10:19 AM

In his first interview since suffering a gruesome leg injury, Alex Smith says that he still intends to continue his NFL career.

"That's the plan," Smith said. "That's the plan. Steps. I've got to conquer some more steps before I get there. Learn to run again. That's a big one. I'm already throwing. I already feel like throwing is not a problem. I feel like I can throw. But dropping, moving around, all that kind of stuff, change of direction."

The Washington Redskins quarterback must wear the external fixator on his leg for another four to six weeks.

"Believe it or not, this thing is going to save my leg, save my bone, allow me to heal and walk again and hopefully play football again," Smith said.

Todd Gurley's Trainer Confirms 'Arthritic' Issue With Knee

Jun 18, 2019 9:09 AM

The Los Angeles Rams have continually downplayed any issue with Todd Gurley's knee despite missed time during the team's run to the Super Bowl last season.

However, Travelle Gaines, Gurley's personal trainer, confirmed that the running back has arthritic issues stemming from an ACL tear in college. He downplayed any impact on Gurley's play.

"Everybody knew when Todd came out of Georgia that there would be some kind of arthritic component to his knee, which is part of every surgery whether it's a shoulder, a knee, an ankle," Gaines said.

"He's now at the year-five mark, all we're doing is managing that. If we can pound him less in the offseason while keeping his weight down, working on his strength, working on his agility in short areas, that's going to give him a better chance to be healthy Weeks 14 through 17 when they really count."
