Dwayne Haskins Jr. Presser: I was trying to do too much, trying to make plays

Dwayne Haskins and Kendall Fuller spoke to the media after today’s loss

Dwayne Haskins Jr. Spoke to the media after a turnover-filled loss to the Cleveland Browns. He threw 3 interceptions, and also lost a fumble.

Haskins said he was trying to do too much, trying to make a play, or fir it into a tight window which led to the turnovers. He doesn't feel like he was staring down receivers, even though there was a heavy focus on that from today's announcers. He said he needs to look elsewhere if his guy is covered, or take the sack if the throw isn't there.

Dwayne Haskins Jr. said he is very close with Head Coach Ron Rivera, and appreciated him saying he supported him after today's rough game. Rivera said that he would stick with Haskins and take his lumps as the young QB grows and learns from his mistakes. He also got support from players and other coaches today.

Kendall Fuller talked to the media after playing in his first game of the season. Fuller missed the first to games with a knee injury he has been dealing with since training camp. He said it felt good to finally be back on the field.

Washington suffered two big injuries when Chase Young(groin) and Matt Ioannidis(arm) left the game. It's next man up when it comes to injuries, and Montez Sweat stepped up today. He has been showing what he could do since training camp, and Fuller wasn't surprised by how good he was today.
