His wife, Elizabeth Smith, posted an update on Instagram on Sunday morning and said she was grateful to have her husband home.

HOME...This last month has been a difficult ride. Our family is beyond happy to have this man with us and home. This experience has given us great perspective and gratitude for all the people and blessings in our lives. We couldn’t have gotten through it without our amazing family, friends and community. A special thank you to the relentless doctors, nurses, techs, hospital administrators, the Snyder family and the Washington Redskins.

Smith sustained a spiral fracture to his right leg when he was sacked in a game against the Houston Texans on Nov. 18. He underwent surgery the following day to repair his fibula and tibia. NFL Network and Washington's 106.7 FM reported that a leg infection complicated his recovery and required further procedures.
