Doug Williams talked about the situation recently on SiriusXM NFL Radio (h/t Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk).

“It’s our job in the personnel department to find somebody who can play,” Williams said. “Thank God we have Colt coming back from an injury. We just gotta find somebody to mix in there and we know we gotta have that guy, but we gotta build around whoever it is. I think that’s the most important thing.]]> 5434243 Wed, 20 Feb 2019 21:54:01 EDT Redskins Wire
<![CDATA[Mel Kiper Jr. gives Redskins QB Drew Lock in latest mock draft]]>
Unlike other recent mocks, Kiper gives the Redskins Missouri’s Drew Lock in his latest offering for ESPN:

Welcome to the first round, Drew Lock. He was the best quarterback at the Senior Bowl, and he might have the most arm talent of any passer in this class. Now, he’s inconsistent. He misses throws and needs a lot of work on his footwork. He put some bad performances on tape in 2018, though he finished the season strongly. You can see on that tape, though, why a team could fall in love and take the 6-foot-4, 228-pound Lock early. That could be Jay Gruden’s Washington team, which might not have Alex Smith this season]]> 5433038 Mon, 18 Feb 2019 22:18:01 EDT Redskins Wire

Those Redskins, after all, have to think about life without Alex Smith, which leaves them looking at Colt McCoy and others as possible starters.

Unless they grab a prospect like Daniel Jones in the upcoming draft.

Luke Easterling of Draft Wire has the Redskins doing just that in a new mock:

It’s hard to imagine Alex Smith being ready to play at any point in 2019, and there’s nothing currently on the roster that screams starting-caliber NFL quarterback. Don’t be surprised if they make a move, even just a few slots in return for swapping third-and-fourth-round picks, to secure a raw but promising passer like Jones to build around]]> 5432488 Sun, 17 Feb 2019 23:12:01 EDT Redskins Wire
<![CDATA[Redskins | Washington still has hope for Alex Smith]]> Alex Smith (leg) hopefully will be able to play at some point in 2019. Footballguys View: Note how Williams says 'at some point' here. That doesn't mean at the beginning of the season and it may mean well into the regular season. We're hopeful for Smith as well but there's still a chance he never plays football again. Expect Washington to make a move at the quarterback position this offseason, either through the draft or free agency.]]> 5432421 Sun, 17 Feb 2019 19:30:02 EDT footballguys <![CDATA[Doug Williams: We need to find somebody to mix in at quarterback]]> Alex Smith‘s wife shared photos of her husband taking some time out of his own recovery from a broken leg by visiting with wounded soldiers at the Center for the Intrepid last week and those snapshots showed that Smith is still wearing an external fixator over his cast.
