Washington Football Team quarterback Dwayne Haskins found himself in hot water this week after photos emerged of him having a fun, mask-free time at a strip club.
Is this Dwayne Haskins? I really hope not. These women are all wearing Washington #7 shirts yesterday and that certainly does look like #7 himself partying maskless last night with strippers after the game. pic.twitter.com/BxgHdjuiCe

The photo in question was reportedly taken following Washington’s 20-15 loss to the Seattle Seahawks this past weekend.
“We have been told by someone who would know, who has seen the whole Instagram story before it was made private, that it was Dwayne Haskins and it was Sunday after the game,” said 106.7 The Fan’s The Sports Junkies host John Auville on Tuesday morning.
“The organization and the team is very much aware of the posts on social media, and they have been — and are — in contact with the NFL about this situation,” Chris Russell later reported on 106.7.

“And they’re handling the situation internally.”
Shortly after the photos emerged, Haskins came out and publicly apologized.
“I also want to apologize for creating a distraction for my team during our playoff push,” he tweeted out.

“I will learn and grow from this and do what’s best for the team moving forward.”
This past weekend, Haskins made his first start for the Washington Football Team since Week 4. He helped guide his squad back from a 20-3 hole in the fourth quarter, before ultimately coming up short on the final drive.
Washington is on the precipice of a postseason run and can clinch the NFC East divisional title with a victory over the Carolina Panthers next weekend.
Haskins was already fined by the team once earlier this season for breaking COVID-19 protocols.
