Dwayne Haskins has reportedly still not returned to the Washington Football Team.
According to ProFootballTalk, Haskins didn’t return to the team through Wednesday after missing the Sunday game with a stomach virus. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
While nobody seems to know for sure what’s going on, PFT did float the possibility that this might not be totally related to an illness.
“It would be hard to blame Haskins for reacting to his demotion by deciding to stay away from the team, citing an illness that is embellished, exaggerated, or fabricated,” Mike Florio wrote.
As I said Sunday, we really can’t say for sure what’s going on, but there are going to be a lot of questions about Haskins until he returns to the team.
He was benched in humiliating fashion and demoted to third string after being a first round pick. Shortly afterwards, he develops a stomach virus and has been away from the team since at least Sunday.
It’s not hard to see why Florio and others are going to speculate whether or not he’s actually super sick.
