Haskins was still expected to be at the game, but that reportedly won’t be the case. According to multiple reports, Haskins will remain at home because he has a stomach virus and the team told him not to come in.
Washington head coach Ron Rivera said this week that the team has not given up on Haskins, who was a first-round pick under different management in the 2019 draft. Rivera added that he wanted Haskins to be “watching and studying” how Allen runs the offense because Allen has more experience in the team’s offensive system.
Thanks to the illness, Haskins’ view for his first week of observation is going to be a distanced one.
