Alex Smith suffered a broken tibia and fibula during the third quarter of Washington's 23-21 loss to the Houston Texans.

Smith will undergo surgery and miss the remainder of the season.

Smith suffered the injury when he was sacked by J.J. Watt and Kareem Jackson.

The injury was clearly severe when it occurred and as Smith left the field he waved to the crowd and put his hands together as if in a prayer.
