Ron Rivera Presser: I have not quit on Dwayne Haskins Jr. in terms of his development

Ron Rivera speaks to the media after today’s practice

NFL: Washington Football Team at Arizona Cardinals Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Ron Rivera talked about the QB situation going into this week. Kyle Allen returned to practice today, and will be the starter this week. He looked good in practice and made all the throws he was asked to make. He is confident and competitive which his teammates recognize.

Dwayne Haskins Jr. didn’t practice today after coming to the facility and being sent home by the team doctor with medicine. Haskins was also sent home on Sunday because he was sick, and missed the Rams game. Rivera described it as a gastrointestinal issue. He also said the team is not keeping him out of the building. Rivera said he hasn’t quit on Haskins in terms of his development. He wouldn’t answer questions about a potential trade.

There has been a lack of consistency with some of the younger players. Guys like Geron Christian Sr. and Wes Martin were mentioned and Rivera wasn’t pleased with the guard play last week. The OL hasn’t been bad this year, but last week was a bad game for them. Saahdiq Charles was practicing at guard today, and Rivera said there could be an opportunity for him this week. Brandon Scherff also returned to practice from IR and took some first team reps, but as listed as limited. Rivera said he’s still coming back from injury and they need to see how he responds this week.
