Monday marked the one-year anniversary of one of the worst injuries the NFL has ever seen.

After being tackled by J.J. Watt in a game against the Texans, Alex Smith’s leg was caught under him, snapping in two.

Multiple infections, 17 surgeries, and countless days in the hospital and weeks in rehab, Smith is finally regaining some sort of normalcy in his life. Smith wife Elizabeth Barry posted a video to her Instagram account showing a glimpse at the journey and the battle her husband has been on since that game.
