Washington football quarterback Dwayne Haskins apologized on Tuesday after photos of him partying after the team lost to the Seattle Seahawks leaked. Haskins has been seen with people who weren’t wearing masks, and he wasn’t wearing one either.
Haskins shared his apologies on Twitter. He said he spoke to Washington head coach Ron Rivera and took full responsibility for his actions and for putting his teammates at risk amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Washington team officials said they were handling the situation internally.

Haskins isn’t sure of playing in the team’s next game against the Carolina Panthers, especially if Alex Smith returns from injury. Rivera has previously noted that Smith will be the starter if he is eligible to play.
