Washington Football Team quarterback Dwayne Haskins issued an apology on Tuesday after photos leaked of him partying following the team’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Haskins was seen with people who weren’t wearing a mask, and he didn’t have one on as well.
Haskins shared his apology on Twitter. He said that he spoke to Washington head coach Ron Rivera, and he took full responsibility for his actions and putting his teammates at risk amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"It was irresponsible and immature of me and I accept responsibility for my action," Haskins wrote. "I also want to apologize for creating a distraction for my team during our playoff push. I will learn and grow from this and do what’s best for the team moving forward."
Washington teams officials said they are handling the situation internally.

Rivera already noted that Smith will be the starter if he is eligible to play.
