After a 6-3 start to the 2018 season, everything seemed to be going according to plan for quarterback Alex Smith. Then came the Nov. 18 game against the Houston Texans; Alex was sacked and fell to the ground with a severe injury to his right leg. But nobody knew just how severe the really situation was—until now. ESPN's Stephania Bell spent more than a year documenting Alex's journey for E:60, with rare and exclusive access to him, his family and his doctors, who deemed the injury "warlike." Project 11 is a riveting look at the life of Alex Smith, from lightly recruited high school quarterback to battle-tested former No. 1 draft pick fighting his way back from an injury that almost cost him everything.
