Dwayne Haskins is bracing himself as the starting quarterback for the Washington Football Team on Sunday, despite an incident this week that caused the team and league to assess whether he broke the COVID-19 protocols.
Haskins is doing reps with the initial attack in training today, while injured Alex Smith is out, according to reporters at the scene.
This came on the heels of Haskins apologizing after photos circulated on social media showing him without a mask, in close contact with several women who also did not wear masks.
The Football Team and the NFL apparently determined that Haskins’ violation did not put him at high risk of contracting COVID-19 and that he is allowed to stay close to the team. With Smith and Kyle Allen injured, Haskins is the likely starter on Sunday, when a win in Washington combined with a defeat by the Giants against the Ravens would win the NFC East for the football team.
