The Washington Redskins are planning as though they won't have Alex Smith at all in 2019, according to sources.
Smith's first season in Washington was cut short by a gruesome leg injury that will take considerable time to heal. He suffered a compound fracture in Week 11.
The Redskins would be surprised if Smith were able to play at all next season.
The quarterback has battled infections, which have lengthened the recovery process.
