Moments ago, Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen suffered a serious-looking left leg injury against the New York Giants.
Allen’s leg appeared to snap when he collided with Giants safety Jabrill Peppers. We wouldn’t recommend watching the replay if you’re squeamish.
Ironically, Allen was replaced by Alex Smith, nearly two years to the day that Smith suffered a terrible leg injury against the Houston Texans. The veteran QB almost lost his leg and sat out the entire 2019 season as he rehabbed.
Former Washington quarterback Joe Theismann knows all-too-well about gruesome leg fractures. Back in November 1985, his career ended when his leg was crushed in a game against the New York Giants.
We’d like to think that Theismann was speaking for a lot of longtime WFT fans with his tweet this afternoon after Allen was injured.
November is a lousy month for Washington QBs

Allen has already been declared out for the game. According to FOX sideline reporter Shannon Spake, his family has been summoned to the Washington locker room, which is always a sign that things are serious.
They just escorted Kyle Allen’s family into the locker room. They were in the stands and walked down. 🙏🏻

We’re wishing Allen nothing but the best. Hopefully, whatever the extent of the damage to his leg, he is able to make a full recovery.
