16, 2020, off the physically unable to perform list by Washington's National Football League team, the latest step in his remarkable recovery after his right leg was broken in two places during a game almost two years ago.

Quarterback Alex Smith was activated off the physically unable to perform list by Washington's National Football League team Sunday, the latest step in a remarkable recovery after his right leg was broken in two places during a game almost two years ago. The news was first reported Saturday by NBC Sports Washington.

Smith broke his tibia and fibula when he was tackled during a November 2018 game against the Houston Texans during his first season in Washington. He stayed on the PUP list in Washington, as the team worked him out to see how mobile he could be on that leg. Due to an infection, he had to undergo more than a dozen surgeries, which caused doctors to fear that he'd lose his leg - and possibly his life. He was placed on the physically unable to perform list on July 27.

Smith and his family celebrated the news in style, with his wife, Elizabeth, posting the moment on Instagram.

Last week, head coach Ron Rivera said: "If Alex is healthy and continues to get healthy and we do activate him, he's going to be in the throws of this competition".

In 13 years, Smith has started 161 games and thrown 193 touchdowns and 101 interceptions.
