WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - Redskins quarterback Alex Smith has broken his silence for the first time since breaking his leg last fall.
FOX 5's Angie Goff talked to Smith earlier this week - and you can listen to it on her "Oh My Goff" podcast.
Smith told Goff that he still wants to play - and that he feels good enough to consider returning.
The 35-year-old told Goff that he's been getting back into the swing of things - golfing, working out, driving.
"Stuff happens to everybody - life happens. I feel like for me this is a time for me to be tested and I have this challenge in front of me and how can I handle it," Smith said.
In a month or, Smith hopes he can start running again, but he says throwing hasn't been a problem.
Smith says he's advancing faster than he thought he would.
