The Redskins nabbed Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins with the 15th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. Haskins was just a 1-year starter at Ohio State … but it was a super impressive year. He completed 70% of his passes and set Big Ten records with 4,831 yards and 50 TDs. Haskins did a lot of damage on short and intermediate throws — his 9.1 average depth of target ranked 42nd in this draft class, per Pro Football Focus — but he also finished with the 8th best passer rating on throws 20+ yards downfield. Haskins’ 77.1% adjusted completion rate was 5th best in the class. He’s not going to boost his fantasy value with his legs, but Haskins has the size (6’3, 231 lbs.) and arm to stick as a long-term NFL starter. Despite his relative inexperience, Haskins has a good shot to win Washington’s Week 1 starting job over Case Keenum and Colt McCoy.
The Redskins hired Scott Turner as OC. He's re-uniting with Ron Rivera after working with him in Carolina the past 2 years. Turner replaced his father, Norv, as Panthers OC for the final 4 games of last season. That's his only experience calling plays at the NFL level.
The Redskins have hired Ron Rivera as their new HC. Rivera compiled a 76-63-1 record in Carolina before being fired earlier this year. He took the Panthers to the playoffs in 4 of his 9 seasons. We'll see if Rivera retains OC Kevin O'Connell or brings in fresh blood.
Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins (ankle) is out for Sunday's finale against the Cowboys, HC Bill Callahan said. Washington will turn back to QB Case Keenum, who has tossed multiple scores in 4 of 5 full games this season. That includes a 221-2-0 passing line vs. Dallas. Keenum will be on the QB2 and DFS radar for Week 17.
Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie is undergoing additional testing. If that confirms this initial diagnosis, he won't play in Sunday's finale against the Cowboys. That'd put Case Keenum back under center for the 'Skins.
Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins was carted back to the locker room in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Giants with a left ankle injury. We'll update his status when we learn more, but Haskins obviously won't be back today. QB Case Keenum is in for Washington.
