LANDOVER, Maryland -- As Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith lay on the ground Sunday, his teammates knew one thing: His season was over. They saw his ankle bent at an awkward angle. They witnessed the pain on his face.
So they took a knee and prayed. They waited for him to be loaded onto a cart and then walked over -- every one of them -- to wish him well. Even most of the Houston Texans' bench walked over to the cart.
Smith, 34, broke both the fibula and tibia in his right leg on a third-quarter sack and underwent surgery at a nearby hospital. Colt McCoy replaced Smith and nearly led the Redskins to a comeback win, but a 63-yard field goal in the final seconds fell 10 yards short as Houston beat Washington 23-21.

Heavy hitter and number one heavyweight contender in the UFC, Derrick Lewis gave a legendary, albeit, profanity laced interview after his knockout of Russian, Alexander Volkov.
“I forgot, a few hours before the fight Donald Trump called me and told me I’ve got to knock this Russian [expletive] out, cause they making him look bad on the news. You know, him and Putin and [expletive]. [Expletive] what they talking bout. USA in this [expletive].”
Lewis, who is from Texas, came out 2 years ago as a Trump supporter during the presidential elections of 2016.

A spectator blinded in one eye at the Ryder Cup says she could have died after being hit by a wayward golf ball. Corine Remande, 49, was injured when American Brooks Koepka's drive on the par-four sixth hole veered off course at Le Golf National and struck her. The Frenchwoman has told BBC Sport she would have been even more seriously injured if the ball had missed her right eye and hit the side of her head.
