Texans win as Redskins' Smith hurt, Saints soar

Redskins Film Room Trey Quinn steps up while Vernon Davis struggles against Texans

Worse than the defeat for Washington was the injury to Smith, who suffered two broken bones in his lower right leg midway through the third quarter.

Smith was sacked by J.J. Watt and Kareem Jackson and remained down on the ground in visible pain.

Smith waved to the crowd as he left the field. And as fate would have it, Smith's injury occurred on the 33rd anniversary of former Redskins QB Joe Theismann's infamous leg break against the Giants and was eerily similar in nature.

Kelemete and Fulton have both been listed on the team's official injury report and played banged up in the past.

The Washington Redskins welcomed the Houston Texans to the capital yesterday, with a 6-3 record that saw them top of the NFC East. "I worry less about Alex and his football career than I do Alex and wanting to be able to do the things in life he wants to do".

Nissan to remove Ghosn as chairman over serious misconduct
That involvement has presented headaches for Ghosn and Nissan before, particularly when it comes to the chairman's compensation. Ghosn, 64, began his career at tiremaker Michelin in France in 1976 before moving on to Renault in 1996.

Reid intercepted Smith's pass intended for tight end Jordan Reed in the end zone and ran the length of the field for a touchdown that put Houston up 17-7 with 2:38 left in the second quarter.

Smith was in his first season with the Redskins after arriving in a trade from the Kansas City Chiefs.

"I've just got to keep trusting the guys up front", Miller said.

Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Chargers saw their six-game winning streak halted when Brandon McManus booted a 34-yard field goal as time expired to give the Denver Broncos a 23-22 victory. Colt McCoy, Washington's only other quarterback, replaced Smith in the third and threw a touchdown pass on the following series. "So we'll see how he does", Gruden said.

Watt, who actually suffered a season-ending leg injury of his own a year ago in front of Smith when he was with the Chiefs, is no stranger to overcoming adversity.
