Steve Helber/Associated Press

The unthinkable happened Sunday when Alex Smith played in an NFL game again. 

Smith suffered a gruesome leg injury nearly two years ago that required 17 surgeries to rectify. When the Washington Football Team’s Kyle Allen, who started instead of Dwayne Haskins Jr., endured a head-on collision with Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey, Smith entered the contest and didn’t leave. 

In the 30-10 loss, the 36-year-old signal-caller completed nine of 17 passes for 37 yards. But Smith’s actual performance didn’t matter to many, including his counterpart on the other sideline Sunday.

Cricket-Delhi’s Pant out for a week, Smith hails Stokes’ return

Oct 12 (Reuters)Delhi Capitals wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant will miss a week’s action in the Indian Premier League (IPL) after sustaining a hamstring injury in Friday’s victory over the Rajasthan Royals, his captain Shreyas Iyer said.

Pant was seen limping towards the end of the match and sat out of Sunday’s loss to Mumbai Indians, with Australian Alex Carey replacing him behind the stumps.

“I spoke to the doctor and he said he is going to be resting for a week,” Iyer said after Sunday’s five-wicket loss in Abu Dhabi.

“Hope he comes back strongly after this break.”

Pant’s absence disrupts the team balance for Delhi, who are second behind four-time winners Mumbai.

IPL teams are allowed to field a maximum of four overseas players in their
