Former Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith turns 36 on Thursday — and to mark the occasion, his wife Elizabeth posted a video of Smith working out as he continues his rehabilitation from the horrible injury he suffered as the quarterback of the Washington Redskins in November 2018.

If you watched the ESPN E60 documentary laying out the graphic details of about Smith’s injury and recovery, you might think there is little chance he could actually return to the NFL. But he’s still out there, doing his best to make it happen.
Happy Birthday, Alex — and good luck!
