Report: Dwayne Haskins fined for violating Washington's COVID-19 protocols


Quarterback Dwayne Haskins was fined $4,833 by the Washington Football Team for violating the team's COVID-19 protocols, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Per Schefter, the infraction occurred during Washington's Week 6 game against the Giants in New York last Sunday, for which Haskins was declared inactive. Haskins made a reservation for a family friend at the team hotel, Schefter says, which is strictly prohibited by the team.

While Haskins' friend did check into the hotel, the person did not have any contact with Haskins at the hotel, Schefter reports.

Haskins was not punished with the maximum allowable fine, which Schefter says is $14,650.

Washington head coach Ron Rivera is currently receiving cancer treatment, which puts him in a high-risk category if he were to potentially contract COVID-19.

Haskins has been inactive since Washington's Week 4 loss to Baltimore, after which he was benched for Kyle Allen and demoted to third string.
