Alex Smith has been cleared by the team doctor to start Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The 36-year-old has a chance to lead his team to a win that would secure their spot in the postseason if it beats the Eagles (4-10-1). The team has lost two consecutive games with Smith unable to play.
If he needed any motivation to get a win, his wife Elizabeth Barry, took to Instagram and showed off his leg brace that was in the shape of the Lombardi Trophy.
She also included an inspirational message.
“No matter the outcome, Alex has already won.”
Alex Smith’s wife posted this on Instagram. His external fixator brace is now in the shape of the Lombardi Trophy.
