Dwayne Haskins has landed himself in hot water.
The Washington Football Team fined the quarterback for violating the team’s COVID-19 protocols in Week 6, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Haskins made a reservation for a family friend at the team hotel, which Schefter said is “strictly prohibited.”
Haskins reportedly was slapped with a $4,833 fine, avoiding the $14,650 maximum.
Haskins, however, didn’t even play in Week 6. In fact, he was benched ahead of Washington’s Week 5 contest against the Los Angeles Rams after coaches weren’t pleased with the progress he’d made.
But COVID-19 has proven it doesn’t discriminate as it becomes a growing issue in the NFL. Several teams have placed players on their respective reserve/COVID-19 lists in the last few weeks as cases spike both in the league and across the country.
Hopefully, Haskins learned his lesson.
