Dan Snyder stopped Dwayne Haskins from returning to game after ankle injury

Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins left Sunday’s game with an ankle injury, and it apparently took an intervention from ownership to keep him from returning.

A team spokesperson said that owner Dan Snyder told Haskins to listen to the team’s medical advice and not return to the game, which the Redskins ultimately lost to the New York Giants.

It’s an interesting PR move, and a bit weird if Snyder had to intervene. There was no reason to send Haskins back into the game. The doctor’s advice should have been enough for the coaching staff to sit him down.

The good news is Haskins’ ankle issue doesn’t sound overly severe despite how worrisome it looked live. He may not play next week, but that’s not a big deal as long as he’s good for training camp.
