UPDATE: The Washington Post is reporting the team has disciplined Haskins, but it is unclear whether it is a fine or suspension. The Post made it clear Haskins is not expected to be released.

Washington Football Team quarterback Dwayne Haskins has posted an apology on Twitter following photos circulating of him at a strip club and not wearing a mask. This marks the second violation of COVID-19 health protocols and he likely faces a fine or suspension.

Photos circulated on Monday showing Haskins at the club following the team’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The NFL is aware of the incident and is investigating the matter, per Tom Pelissero. Discipline could range from a fine of one game check up to a four-game suspension.

Haskins had lost his starting job earlier this year, but regained it when Alex Smith suffered a leg injury. Smith seemed likely to eventually return to the starting role, and this might only speed up the process if Smith is healthy for Week 16 when Washington travels to face the Carolina Panthers.

Haskins status beyond this season is likely in question after multiple violations of COVID-19 regulations.
