Dwayne Haskins still sick, sent home from practice


Washington quarterback Dwayne Haskins is still sick and was not at practice Wednesday, three days after missing Sunday's game due to a stomach virus.

On Sunday morning, Haskins — who lost his starting job and was demoted to third string last week — was sent home by team officials, before the team traveled from the hotel to the stadium for their game against the Rams, after coming down with a stomach virus. It was not COVID-19 related.

Now it appears Haskins is still suffering from the same illness, which is still not related to COVID-19.

Haskins did report to team facilities on Wednesday, where he underwent typical COVID-19 testing before being sent home by team officials.

Haskins began feeling sick 48 hours prior to Sunday's game, according to WUSA9's Darren Haynes, which would place the origins of the sickness around Friday morning.

Haynes reports Haskins is "still throwing up and is still on medication."

UPDATE: Ron Rivera addressed the quarterback's absence after practice, explaining Haskins is dealing with a gastrointestinal issue.

Additionally, offensive coordinator Scott Turner says he spoke with Haskins on Monday and expects him back in the building soon.
