Alex Smith

Ron Rivera provided his weekly reminder that quarterback Alex Smith is part of the Washington Football Team.

Rivera could play a role in the QB competition if healthy, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

Rivera reiterated Monday that he believes Smith could vie for reps if cleared from devastating knee injury.

“This could be a very interesting challenge for us because of Alex Smith,” Rivera said.

“If Alex is healthy and continues to get healthy and we do activate him, he’s going to be in the throes of this competition. It’s going to unfold I think very nicely for us as a football team. This competition is only going to make you better, it’s going to push the young guys as well. So I just feel really good about what we’re going to be doing as we start going forward. It’ll be a very challenging situation to make sure everybody’s reps are equitable and their competition is the same.”

Smith remains on the physically unable to perform list as he continues rehabbing.
