NFL QB Ryan Fitzpatrick had a real palm-to-the-face moment after Alex Smith‘s life-threatening leg injury … admitting he sent the guy a SUPER embarrassing text that he’s calling “one of my biggest regrets to date.”
So … what could Fitzy have *possibly* said that was so bad?? Well, here’s the Washington Football Team signal caller’s take on the incident.
“When Alex broke his leg in that game a few years ago, I had what I thought was a similar injury,” Fitzpatrick told Chris Long‘s “Green Light” podcast. … citing the fractured tibia he suffered in 2014.
“So the single worst text I’ve ever sent out, I sent it to Alex. I said, ‘Hey, Alex, just want to let you know they’ll fix you right up, you’ll be good as new! I’m out here and I don’t feel any pain from my injury 3 years later!'”
