Report: Dwayne Haskins facing fine from Washington Football Team
Washington Football Team quarterback Dwayne Haskins has reportedly been fined by the franchise for a violation of the COVID-19 protocols implemented by the team. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news on Friday afternoon.
Per Schefter, Haskins made a reservation for a family friend at the team hotel, which is not permitted. The second-year NFL QB was fined $4,833 for the violation, but the maximum could’ve been $14,650.
Washington is scheduled to play the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Haskins has recently been demoted to third-string quarterback in Washington. He began the year by winning the starting job with the Football Team but has since been benched.
Through four games, Haskins threw for 939 yards and 4 touchdowns and 3 interceptions while completing 61 percent of his passes. Washington was just 1-3 with Haskins under center. Life hasn’t been much better with Haskins on the bench, as Washington is now 1-5 on the year.
Following Haskins’ benching two weeks ago, CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported that Washington was expected to trade the first-round draft pick before the deadline — or at least gauge some interest from other teams around the league.
