E60 releases trailer for documentary on Alex Smith’s recovery
It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost two years since Alex Smiths suffered one of the worst injuries we have ever seen.
The former Washington Redskins quarterback suffered a spiral and compound fracture of the right tibia and fibula after being sacked in a game against the Houston Texans.
The injury was considered one of the most significant injuries sustained in a game in NFL history. At one point, doctors were unsure if they were going to be able to save his leg. At one point, Smith himself told the media he was “lucky to be alive.”

In efforts to document the recovery process, E60 released a trailer for their new documentary “Project 11.” The documentary centers the 35-year old’s recovery. E60 posted the video on their Twitter page with the caption: “When @Redskins QB Alex Smith broke his leg in 2018, no one thought it would take 17 surgeries to fix.”
The images show the gruesome injury that was sustained. As part of the 17 surgeries, Smith faced an infection, which required so much attention.

The E60 special will reportedly document his strenuous recovery and the obstacles he has faced over the course of the last 18 months.
Smith is a former three-time Pro Bowl quarterback that broke into the league in 2005 as the No. 1 overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers. He was later traded to the Kansas City Chiefs, but was shipped to the Redskins to allow Mahomes to take over.
We wish him luck on his continued recovery.
