NBC Sports’s JP Finlay tweeted out a picture of Smith smiling, who is seen wearing a stabilizing brace in a wheelchair.

Smith suffered a compound fracture of his right leg on November 18th against the Texans – meaning the bone broke through his skin. ‘Skins head coach Jay Gruden estimated Smith, 34 years-old, would face a recovery time of six to eight months.

The Redskins also tweeted out a picture of Smith on the scoreboard during the game.
