Redskins quarterback Alex Smith was at the Wizards game against the Detroit Pistons on Monday and visited the team in the locker room afterward — making his first public appearance since breaking his leg in November.

Smith was on crutches and had a giant brace around his leg. But the 34-year-old seemed to be upbeat as he interacted with several Wizards, including star Bradley Beal.

Smith was also shown on the jumbotron during the game. The quarterback waved to the Capital One Arena crowd and received loud cheers.

“He’s a great guy, an unbelievable guy,” Beal said. “It’s unfortunate what happened to him. He’s a real cool dude.”

The Redskins quarterback declined comment to The Washington Times after the game.

Smith suffered a season-ending broken leg on Nov. 18 against the Houston Texans and went on to have multiple post-op infections. It is not known when — or if — Smith will make his return to the field.

After Smith’s injury, the Redskins lost six of their last seven games to finish the season with a 7-9 record.
