Whatever Rivera decides will be a key metric in how he views the rebuild of the club. As well as his relationship to the owner.
 

Smith and Snyder are close, with Smith spending hone ganes last year in the owners box. Snyder has taken a ton of PR hits over the past two years since this injury happened. I could easily see him wanting Smith to start and generate some good headlines. 

FOX has Rivera stating Smith will have a chance to compete for the starting job....

It should be considered a victory for Alex Smith to have gotten back to where he is in his recovery.  With this in mind, as well as all the money he has made over what has already been a long career, I'd like to see him ride off into the sunset, keep his health, and enjoy a great life for the next 50+ years.

With the way things are looking we might not even have a season. Would give Smith an extra year to get his body right if he's serious about playing again.

Are people sleeping on Smith? The Redskins were like 6-3 with him a couple seasons ago. Players can sometimes come back from previously unimaginable injuries now. And I think people underestimate how valuable not turning them ball over and being able to complete basic passes is. What it can do just for field position, time of possession, and avoiding negative changes in momentum. 
 

I’m not predicting a huge comeback, but if he can play I can see him QB’ing a 5-11 type team to 8-8 and an 11-5 type team to 11-5.

These QB competitions are going to be weird without any preseason games.

I hope he plays again.

IF Smith can play, would they consider starting him all season -  or just play him enough to raise his trade value by the October deadline ?

They have to keep him on the roster his the best qb on the roster plus Washington could use all the great press they can get at the moment

He was the best QB on the roster when his leg didn't look like a piece of beef jerky 

I can't believe he is actually going to even attempt to do anything football related again.

I understand overcoming the mental challenge and having that satisfaction of playing again but there is a line where it's just flat out irresponsible to even attempt to do that.
