Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins fully participates in Wednesday’s practice despite ankle sprain
Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice in spite of an ankle sprain, according to Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk.
Interim head coach Bill Callahan said that the rookie signal-caller looked just fine.
“He looked great today,” said Callahan. “I think everything he did in individual was seamless. I thought it was really clean. I thought it was flawless. I thought that there were no setbacks. I saw fluidity. We moved him out of the pocket quite a bit today as well, so if there was any apprehension of possibly not testing it or looking at it deeply, we wouldn’t have done what we did. There were a lot of movement actions, a lot of different things we did with him on the perimeter. So, no, there was nothing holding him back. He was fully clear. It was just a very mild ankle sprain that he went through Sunday.”
Haskins suffered the ankle injury during the first half of his team’s loss to the Green Bay Packers last Sunday after being sacked by linebacker Preston Smith.
The Ohio State product finished the game, but displayed a noticeable limp throughout the remainder of the contest.
Haskins said that he “feels good” and that it was just a “low-ankle sprain,” which is certainly good news, as high-ankle sprains are well-known to be much more severe.
The 22-year-old completed 16 of his 27 throws for 170 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Week 14 and has thrown for 971 yards, three touchdowns and seven picks in seven appearances and five starts on the season as a whole.
