Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen suffered a nasty lower leg injury on Sunday against the New York Giants.

Allen’s leg took an awkward hit from Giants defender Jabrill Peppers, and appeared to be broken.

Here’s the play:

Allen existed the game after starting 5-for-7 for 61 yards. He was replaced by Alex Smith, who is just two years removed from suffering a gruesome leg injury of his own.

Smith has played in one game already this season. He completed 9-of-17 passes for 37 yards in a loss to the Rams on Oct. 10.

Allen was able to wave to crowd as he was being carted off:

According to a report from Tom Pelissero, the injury might not be quite as bad as it looked:

If Washington loses, it will fall to 2-6 on the season but will still be in the race for the NFC East.
