The Washington Post posted a huge story on Tuesday, breaking that the organization paid $1.6 million to a woman who claimed sexual misconduct by team owner Daniel Snyder.

Hours later, it was revealed quarterback Dwayne Haskins is in trouble for going to a strip club … sans mask.

The team said it has made the league aware of the picture that was on Instagram, which was taken hours after Haskins had started in Washington’s 20-15 loss to Seattle. Handling the issue internally likely means Haskins will be fined, as he was earlier this season when he violated COVID-19 protocols by making reservations for a family friend to stay at the team hotel the night before a road game against the New York Giants.

Haskins tweeted an apology, saying he spoke with coach Ron Rivera on Monday and “took full responsibility for putting the team at risk. It was irresponsible and immature and I accept responsibility for my action.” He also issued an apology to his teammates for “creating a distraction during our playoff push.”

“I want to publicly apologize for my actions this past Sunday,” Haskins tweeted before turning his account setting to private. “I spoke with Coach Rivera yesterday and took full accountability for putting the team at risk. It was irresponsible and immature of me and I accept responsibility for my action. I also want to apologize for creating a distraction for my team during our playoff push. I will learn and grow from this and do what’s best for the team moving forward.”
