Ron Rivera Presser: The only way we can find out if Dwayne Haskins can do it is to keep him on the field

Ron Rivera speaks to the media after today’s loss to the Browns

Ron Rivera is now 1-2 as the Washington Football Team’s head coach. Today’s game was a turnover-filled mess, and the Browns got the 34-20 win. Rivera said he told Dwayne Haskins Jr. that he is sticking with him at QB after his 4-turnover day. This is basically Haskins’ rookie season, and Rivera wants to see what he has in his young QB. The only way to do that is to keep him on the field, and “take his lumps” with him.

Washington lost Chase Young (groin) and Matt Ioannidis (arm) to injury, and needed other players to step up. Rivera didn’t offer any updates on the injuries, but said Daron Payne, Jonathan Allen, and Montez Sweat all stepped up today. Dontrelle Inman was also injured in the 4th quarter after catching 2 TDs earlier. Rivera said some of the young skill players also stepped up, one of them being undrafted rookie Isaiah Wright.
