  Redskins | Teammate doubts Alex Smith will play    Tue Feb 12, 03:14 PM

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is not expected to play this season, in the opinion of RB Chris Thompson. 'We know and understand that it's probably not going to happen that we have him this year,' Thompson admitted. The Redskins have discussed a new deal with QB Josh Johnson, but QB Colt McCoy is slated to start the year if Smith can't go.

Footballguys view: Smith's football future is certainly up in the air. Not only will he potentially miss the 2019 season, there is a chance that Smith may never be able to play football again. We hope that is not the case and will continue to monitor his recovery closely. Smith is in the midst of a an extensive recovery from a severe compound leg fracture late in the season.

  Redskins | Josh Johnson could re-sign with WAS    Thu Jan 31, 08:12 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Josh Johnson is one of the players the team is trying to re-sign, according to team president Bruce Allen.

Footballguys view: Johnson was at least able to make Washington a credible competitor when he was in the lineup, although he does seem redundant with Colt McCoy as competent, but limited backups. The team needs to find someone better than McCoy or Johnson to start with Alex Smith's 2019 in question.

Oakland Raiders QB Josh Johnson was released Thursday, May 10, according to a source.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick in 2008 (by Jon Gruden's Buccaneers), Johnson has bounced around the league and played for around 1/3 of the NFL. He couldn't make it with Gruden again and this may be it for his pro career. The Raiders move on with Derek Carr as the starter. Connor Cook and E.J. Manuel will compete for the backup job.

Footballguys view: McGloin looked good in college at Penn State under Texans coach Bill O'Brien, but he's not been a fit in the pro game...with or without O'Brien. Johnson has bounced around to several teams during his pro career, but he's an athletic passer with some regular season experience.

Free-agent QBs Matt Barkley, Matt McGloin, Josh Johnson and Connor Shaw worked out for the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday, Oct. 31.
