Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith appeared to suffer a severe injury in Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, forcing him to be carted off the field with a cast on his right foot.

Smith was sacked by J.J. Watt and Kareem Jackson and remained down on the ground in visible pain.

The injury likely ends Smith's season. According to the CBS broadcast, Smith was taken to a local hospital by ambulance.

When the Redskins took over down two points with under a minute to play, backup quarterback Colt McCoy attempted a deep third-down pass to receiver Josh Doctson.

And as fate would have it, Smith's injury occurred on the 33rd anniversary of former Redskins QB Joe Theismann's infamous leg break against the Giants and was eerily similar in nature.

"I saw a pile of people go down, and then I saw Alex's leg in the position it was in", Theismann said.

McCoy hasn't worked with the first-team offence for the past few years, but Gruden said he still thinks his new starter at quarterback has a "great comfort level, I believe". "I saw the way his foot was, and I turned away".

Washington will be without its starting quarterback for the rest of the season.

Overall, Sanchez has thrown for 15,219 yards and 86 touchdowns against 86 interceptions since coming into the National Football League in 2009.

The Dallas Cowboys beat the Atlanta Falcons 22-19 to move just one win behind Washington in the NFC East, Brett Maher with a last-second field goal after Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott both ran for touchdowns in a dramatic fourth quarter. "I feel so bad for him".

"With this team, you never know where the play's going to come from", defensive end J.J. Watt said.

"We just have belief", Watson said.
