In a Tuesday press conference, Washington head coach Ron Rivera said Alex Smith will factor into the team’s quarterback competition should he be cleared to play.
“If that happens, I think this is a guy that becomes part of our equation. That’s the truth of the matter,” Rivera said, via Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post.
The story added Rivera said it will “be pure competition” between the able-bodied aspirants for the position. That competition won’t move to the practice field for a couple of weeks and we’ll see if Smith is able to join in at that point.
