It hasn’t been a great week for Washington Football Team quarterback Dwayne Haskins, and it’s not getting better.

Haskins was reportedly told to stay home on Sunday due to illness ahead of the team’s matchup with the Los Angeles Rams. He was set to be inactive but expected to be at the game.

He was reportedly sent home due to a stomach virus that has been bothering him for the past few days. According to Darren M. Haynes of DC’s WUSA9, Haskins took a COVID-19 test which came back negative.

Earlier in the week, Haskins was demoted from starting quarterback and replaced with Kyle Allen. It was actually a double demotion because he wasn’t given the backup job either.

Alex Smith, who is back with the team and active for the first time since suffering a horrific ankle injury in Nov. 2018, was named the No. 2 quarterback. Haskins was pushed down to No. 3.
