Houston Texans: Injuries remain an issue in 7 game win streak

Alex Smith being carted off

It's their first season since the 2011 campaign where they don't have Kirk Cousins in the Quarterback role, but they acquired Alex Smith to replace him.

The Redskins have lost their starting quarterback for the rest of the season.

Smith's right ankle turned the wrong way as he was sacked by Kareem Jackson and J.J. Watt on a play eerily similar to Joe Theismann's broken leg that came exactly 33 years ago to the day.

Worse than the defeat for Washington was the injury to Smith, who suffered two broken bones in his lower right leg midway through the third quarter.

"I just think the defense did a great job", Miller said.

Coincidentally, former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann suffered an nearly identical break when he was sacked by Lawrence Taylor in 1985.

Jay Gruden's men were on the receiving end of a defeat though at the hands of the Texans yesterday though, going down narrowly by a score of 23-21, with Kai'mi Fairbairn hitting a game-winning 54-yard field goal that the Redskins couldn't recover from.

As of now, the Redskins are turning the reigns over to Colt McCoy as their starter moving forward.
