There was a cool post that came from Elizabeth Smith, Washington quarterback Alex Smith’s wife ahead of the regular-finale on Sunday afternoon.

Smith posted a photo of Smith’s old external fixator brace that was used to stabilize his leg after the 17 surgeries following his gruesome injury. The brace has now been fashioned to look like the Lombardi Trophy, which is given to the NFL team to win the Super Bowl.

In the post, Smith wrote the following:

Waiting for this game and I’m a nervous wreck. I look up at our bookshelves as a reminder of where we have been and the hard work to get to this moment. No matter the outcome, Alex has already won. He has beat the largest challenge life has thrown our way. I am incredibly proud and will be cheering loud. Let’s go Washington!

Alex Smith will return to the field for the first time in several weeks on Sunday night with a chance to send Washington to the playoffs for the first time since 2015 with a win.
