Sources: The Washington Football Team is making a QB change. Kyle Allen will get the start vs. the #Rams, while former starter Dwayne Haskins goes to the bench.

Haskins’ time as a starter didn’t last long. After being selected 15th overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, Haskins started 11 games winning just three of them.
Not only is Dwayne Haskins not starting for the Washington Football Team on Sunday, he's not even No. 2. Alex Smith will back up Kyle Allen against the #Rams.

For his career, Haskins has a 59.6% completion percentage to go along with 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He failed to inspire any confidence over the first four games of 2020, and with a new coaching staff and front office in place, Washington has made it clear Haskins isn’t their guy.
Washington (1-3) is now firmly in the first-round quarterback market in the 2021 NFL Draft. They probably won’t be bad enough to challenge for the first overall pick, but with a likely selection in the top 10, Rivera could end up with Justin Fields or Trey Lance as his QB-next.
