Dwayne Haskins made his first NFL in Buffalo on Sunday and one of the first questions to Washington interim head coach Bill Callahan after the 24-9 loss was whether Haskins will make his second start when the team returns from the bye week.
Haskins was elevated to the first team because Case Keenum suffered a concussion in Week Eight, but giving the first-round pick a chance to run as a full-time starter over the final seven weeks of the year makes some sense. Whether Keenum is healthy or not, Washington is 1-8 and figuring out what they have in Haskins could salvage something from a terrible season.
“Nothing has been decided yet,” Callahan said, via JP Finlay of NBCSportsWashington.com.
Haskins was 15-of-22 for 144 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. He was sacked five times and ran three times for 14 yards.
