Dwayne Haskins is preparing as if he will be the Washington Football Team’s starting quarterback on Sunday despite an incident this week that had both the team and the league assess whether he broke COVID-19 records.

Haskins is taking reps with the first string violation at training today while the injured Alex Smith is on the side, according to reporters on stage.

It comes in the heels of Haskins apologizing, after photos circulated on social media showing him not wearing a mask, in close contact with several women who were not wearing masks either.

The football team and the NFL have apparently determined that Haskins’ breakup did not put him at high risk of getting COVID-19 and that he is allowed to be around the team. With both Smith and Kyle Allen injured, Haskins is the likely starter on Sunday, as a win in Washington combined with a Giants loss to the Ravens would win NFC East for the football team.
