Smith broke the tibia and fibula in his right leg while being dragged to the ground in the third quarter of Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans, immediately ending his campaign in stomach-turning, gruesome fashion.

- National Football League quarterback and free agent Mark Sanchez has signed the Washington Redskins, according to reports.

With Sanchez now the backup quarterback in Washington, it means the Redskins will be heading into Dallas with two quarterbacks who have started a combined ZERO games over the past two and a half seasons.

Sanchez started as a rookie for the New York Jets after he was drafted No. 5 overall in 2009.

McCoy will remain the team's starter, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Before Sanchez' signing there was no one behind McCoy on the depth chart.

Since the 6-4 Redskins lead the NFC East, McCoy will instantly be put in a pressure-packed situation. Yet here he is, ready to play for the Redskins during their playoff push.

Sanchez also has played for the Eagles and Cowboys and spent time on the rosters of the Bears and Broncos.

According to ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio, Kaepernick continues to work out six days per week in order to keep his body in playing shape. Sanchez has taken to grabbing Prescott after games and reminding him to enjoy the wins. And what would you know, he worked out for the Lions over the weekend.
