Report: Dwayne Haskins' poor study and practice habits led to his benching
Report: Haskin's poor study and exercise habits resulted in the bank initially appearing on NBC Sports Washington
Washington Football Team quarterback Dwayne Haskins was benched Wednesday in part due to poor training and study habits, a source familiar with the situation, Les Carpenter, told the Washington Post.
Haskins' lack of preparation during the week was evident on Sundays when Haskins toppled several passport catchers and missed the chance to meet open recipients, the Carpenter source said.
A teammate also called out Haskins, according to the source, saying then quarterback Alex Smith would arrive on the team earlier than Haskins and better prepare for the games, even though Smith knew he would be inactive the next day.
Head coach Ron Rivera announced on Wednesday that Haskins would not only move to the bench, but would also be downgraded to third string. Third year pro Kyle Allen will be the starter, with Smith serving as the primary backup.
Rivera cited Allen's familiarity with the offensive system - the QB spent the last two years under Rivera and offensive coordinator Scott Turner in Carolina - and the team's lousy division as two of the main reasons for the move.
"I think our best chance of winning is to put the ball in someone else's hands," said Rivera on Wednesday. "I think our best chance of getting things done on our offensive is in someone else's hands. That's what I do. I do it based on what I've seen. I just think that's the decision that I've met. "
Rivera is rolling with everyone for now. Smith is next. This season should be a development season for Haskins, but it's hard to imagine he'll be back on the field anytime soon.
