  Football Team | Alex Smith uncertain about future    Sun Jan 10, 01:38 PM

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith said he will take a few weeks to decide if he wants to play next season.

Footballguys view: Smith was able to fight back from one of the most horrific leg injuries in league history. He ended up playing in eight games in 2020, passing for 1,582 yards, six touchdowns and eight interceptions. Smith proved he could still be a starter in this league and has all the respect in the world for the way he had to battle back from an injury most others would have not. We'll see if he wants to play next season, likely as a backup. He's signed through the 2022 season, and would need to restructure if he stays with Washington.

  Football Team | No surgery for Antonio Gibson    Sun Jan 10, 01:26 PM

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson (toe) said he will not need to undergo surgery on his injured toe this offseason.

Footballguys view: Good news for the young back here. Gibson played well during his rookie season, but the toe injury did slow him down towards the end of the year. He had more receptions than rushes in college, but Gibson has flourished with more carries in his first pro season. He looks like a RB2 with upside for Fantasy GMs and at full strength Gibson brings a dynamic skill set to the field where he can produce as a runner or receiver out of the backfield.

  Football Team | Update in Taylor Heinicke's injury    Sun Jan 10, 12:22 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Football Team QB Taylor Heinicke (shoulder) suffered an AC joint during the Wild Card playoff game. X-rays on his shoulder were negative.

Footballguys view: Heinicke completed 26-of-44 passes for 304 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Washington's Wild Card loss to the Buccaneers. He played well in the postseason and some team will have interest in bringing him on board as a reserve quarterback. Washington should be at the top of the list for the free agent. No matter what they do at the starting position, Heinicke proved that he could be a trusted backup/spot starter.

  Football Team | Washington may play two QBs vs. Tampa Bay    Tue Jan 5, 02:08 PM

Washington Football Team QBs Alex Smith and Taylor Heinicke could rotate in some form or fashion in the NFC Wild Card game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: Heinicke was thrust into action in Week 16 and looked good in relief of Dwayne Haskins. Smith started and played in Week 17 going for two touchdowns and two interceptions. Going with two quarterbacks would be an interesting strategy, especially against a ferocious front seven like the Buccaneers have.
