Right after the Washington Redskins’ win over the Detroit Lions in Week 12, Dwayne Haskins stated that his right wrist felt sore. After undergoing some tests, Haskins says that ‘everything came back good’ with his injured wrist.
Against the Lions, Haskins didn’t exactly have the best game of his young career. The rookie quarterback completed 13 of his 29 attempts for 156 yards and an interception.
Nevertheless, Haskins made enough plays to secure the first win of his career for the Redskins. But his exciting moment was overtaken by him choosing to take a selfie with fans before the end of the game.
As a result, Bill Callahan had to insert Case Keenum at quarterback to take the kneel to end the game. The young quarterback said that he and Callahan spoke about the situation and promised that it won’t happen again.
After getting a chance to watch the film, Haskins liked what he saw but also understands that there is room to grow.
“[I] liked the pocket presence the last couple drives of the game, extending plays and giving guys chances on the ball,” he said when asked what he saw when he assessed Sunday’s game on film. “Of course there’s room for improvement all the time, throwing on time, throwing accurately and being able to move off of the spot and still find anther part of the progression, and that’s something I need to work on.”
Due to Washington’s playoff aspirations being lifeless, the Redskins’ main focus is getting Haskins as much experience as possible. An injury would only prolong the process for Washington to figure out what Haskins has to work on moving forward.
Thankfully, Haskins doesn’t believe that the injury will cause him to be sidelined for any games.
