Ron Rivera Presser: By no means have I given up on Dwayne Haskins

Ron Rivera speaks to the media after today’s practice

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

Ron Rivera says that he hasn’t given up on Dwayne Haskins Jr. despite demoting him to 3rd string QB this week. In today’s practice “he was back there behind the quarterback, watching the reps, looking downfield and just being involved and staying connected, which is important.” Everyone on the team is being evaluated, starting with new starting QB Kyle Allen. He will step into the same situation that Haskins had, and will need to work with what he has.

Washington will be missing another wide receiver with Steven Sims Jr. going to IR today. Isaiah Wright was an undrafted free agent and has outperformed most people’s expectations since signing with the team. Antonio Gandy-Golden is a rookie who would have benefited from OTAs and preseason. He is becoming more confident in what the offense is doing as the season goes on.

Injury Update:

Dwayne Haskins Jr.:

“Well, I think a big part of it is just watching and studying. Like today—unfortunately you guys didn’t get to see it—but, he was back there behind the quarterback, watching the reps, looking downfield and just being involved and staying connected, which is important. Again, by no means have I given up on him. I just told you guys, the only reason I’m doing what I’m doing is because of the situations and circumstances we’re in right now.”
