The former No. 1 overall pick's injury took place Nov. 18, 2018. Smith was taken down awkwardly by the Houston Texans, and the compound fracture to his right leg resulted in both a broken tibia and fibula in that leg. Smith told “Outside the Lines”that he nearly had to have his leg amputated, in part due to an infection of flesh-eating bacteria after the Tom Wilson Jersey first surgery.
