WASHINGTON, D.C. — Quarterback Alex Smith has been cleared by his surgical team for full football activities.

However, the former Chiefs quarterback needs to pass his physical with Washington doctors before being cleared for football activities.

A team spokesman said Smith would take that physical Monday.

Players are set to report to training camp Tuesday.

Smith hasn't played since November 2018 when he broke the tibia and fibula in his right leg.

ESPN reported Friday night that Smith was cleared to practice.

He remains under contract for this season and two more.

Washington has expected 2019 first-round pick Dwayne Haskins and former Carolina QB Kyle Allen to compete for the starting job this season.
