HOME...This last month has been a difficult ride. Our family is beyond happy to have this man with us and home. This experience has given us great perspective and gratitude for all the people and blessings in our lives. We couldn’t have gotten through it without our amazing family, friends and community. A special thank you to the relentless doctors, nurses, techs, hospital administrators, the Snyder family and the Washington Redskins.
Smith’s NFL future is still in doubt due to the injury, but it’s great to see him out of the hospital and back home. The key at this point is just rehabbing the leg and getting back up and around again. If he gets back on the football field, great. If not, so be it. And if he doesn’t end up playing again, he walks away with financial security for his family potentially for generations to come.
