Washington QB Dwayne Haskins told to stay home due to illness
It's been a bad week for Washington Football Team quarterback Dwayne Haskins, and it's not getting any better.
Haskins is reported to be staying home on Sunday due to illness before the team takes on the Los Angeles Rams. He should be inactive but should be in the game.
He was reportedly sent home with a stomach virus that had bothered him for the past few days. According to Darren M. Haynes of DC's WUSA9, Haskins ran a COVID-19 test that came back negative.
Earlier this week, Haskins was demoted from starting quarterback and replaced with Kyle Allen. It was actually a double downgrade as he hadn't received a backup job either.
Back on the team and playing for the first time since a terrible ankle injury in November 2018, Alex Smith has been named the No. 2 quarterback. Haskins was pushed to number 3.
