(AP) - Washington has released 2019 first-round pick, Dwayne Haskins, the day after he committed three turnovers in a loss to Carolina.
Haskins started in place of injured quarterback Alex Smith despite being disciplined for violating COVID-19 protocols by partying with several people without a mask.
Haskins was 14 of 28 with two interceptions and a fumble against the Panthers before being benched for Taylor Heinicke. Haskins was 1-5 as the starter this season.
Coach Ron Rivera earlier Monday said either Smith or Heinicke would start the regular-season finale at Philadelphia with the NFC East title on the line.
Washington’s previous regime drafted Haskins 15th overall last year.
