According to Rapoport, Smith game out of practice this week with his calf feeling fine and he’s expected to be good to go for Week 17’s game. 

Washington has Taylor Heinicke and Steven Montez available if need be.

Smith, 36, is a former first-round pick of the 49ers back in 2005. After seven years in San Francisco, Smith was traded to the Chiefs in 2013.

Smith was in the fourth year of his five-year, $76 million contract that includes $45 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $10.8 million for the 2018 season when he was traded to Washington.

Washington and Smith later agreed to a four-year, $94 million contract that included $55 million fully guaranteed.

In 2020, Smith has appeared in seven games for Washington and completed 66.4 percent of his passes for 1,420 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.
