The Washington Redskins have signed free agent quarterback Mark Sanchez to back up Colt McCoy, according to multiple reports. Other than Sanchez, the Redskins reportedly also worked out Kellen Clemens, T.J. Yates, EJ Manuel and Josh Johnson following Smith's injury.

The Texans' J.J. Watt and Kareem Jackson sacked Smith in the third quarter, causing both bones in his lower leg to "snap like a dry tree branch" as he went down with his leg bent and "ankle flopping limply", The Washington Post's Thomas Boswell wrote.

The injury was reminiscent of a former Washington quarterback who had his career ended on a similar play, as Joe Theismann immediately saw the similarities between Smith's injury and his from exactly 33 years ago to the day. Washington's passing game coordinator Kevin O'Connell is also familiar with Sanchez and that's because he backed him up for two seasons in NY. Sanchez's last start came in 2015, while McCoy's last start came in 2014.

Finnish president says he briefed Trump on forest monitoring
Citing a conversation with his Finnish counterpart, Mr Trump said they spend " a lot of time on raking and cleaning ". Asked on Saturday whether he thought climate change had a role in the fires, he said "you have a lot of factors".

Since the 6-4 Redskins lead the NFC East, McCoy will instantly be put in a pressure-packed situation.

Of course, you can't talk about Sanchez without talking about the butt-fumble and the butt-fumble is likely going to be a hot topic of conversation this week. Washington will travel to play the Dallas Cowboys for Thanksgiving.
