Smith, who was released from the hospital in December after suffering multiple complications following a devastating leg injury that required nearly a half dozen operations, has not been seen much in public after suffering the injury in November. 

According to Dr. David J. Chao, the "contraption" on Smith's leg is an external fixator, "which serves to hold the bones in place since the hardware from his initial surgery had to be removed."
In the box with Smith was Washington Mystics coach Mike Thibault. A pair of crutches were also seen behind Smith.

While there has been no word on whether Smith will return to the football field, the size of the cast on his leg makes it unlikely he will be playing for the Redskins anytime soon.
