Alex Smith entered Sunday's game against the Rams after almost two years out of the league due to a devastating leg injury. He was Kyle Allen’s backup coming into the game, but was forced into action after Allen took a big helmet-to-helmet hit.
Here's the hit on Allen:

What a fucking story. By far the best thing that's taken place in 2020.
You knew Smith was going to get in at some point for the Washington Football Team, but I don't think anyone thought it would be in his first game as the backup.
I can't wait for the Disney movie.
