On Monday, Washington head coach Ron Rivera informed reporters that the second year QB would be getting demoted to 3rd-string, and that QB Taylor Heinicke would start in Week 17 if Alex Smith cannot play.

Haskins found himself being benched on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers after he threw for just 154 yards with two interceptions on 28 attempts.

Second-year quarterback Taylor Heinicke completed 12 of 19 passes for 137 yards and a touchdown with three carries for 22 yards.

Washington has now dropped back-to-back games after a four-game winning streak.
