Washington Redskins right tackle Morgan Moses was impressed with rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins' toughness to stand in the pocket against the Green Bay Packers despite playing on a gimpy ankle.
"You know he's gonna take some shots. For him to be able to stand in that pocket, especially in that two-minute drill, to score that touchdown to Terry (McLaurin) to be down by five, you look at him just standing in the pocket knowing the rush is coming, the ability to stand tall and to make throws, step up in the pocket, his maturity, he's maturing every week and that's what I speak about with him," Moses said on 106.7 The Fan. "That's what I love about him is that the game is slowing down for him and he's realizing things that are happening and he's able to adjust to it."
The rookie quarterback was defiant after the game when asked if he considered leaving the action.
"Not surprised at all," Moses told The Junkies. "He comes in everyday just humble and head down and ready to work. Sometimes you kinda forget that he's a rookie because he carries himself like a four or five-year vet."
"We see that every day about him," Moses said about the rookie wide receiver. "He's as professional as it gets when you come into the building and just studying and just learning and his work ethic is undeniable."
