Dwayne Haskins lost his captaincy, but he may hang onto his starting job for at least another week.

The Washington Football Team quarterback, who was also fined $40,000 for partying with strippers last weekend, took first-team reps at practice Thursday and is on track to start Sunday against the Panthers as Alex Smith continues to work back from his calf strain, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“Sense out of Washington this week has been that it would be challenging for QB Alex Smith to return from his calf injury this week,” Schefter tweeted.

Haskins started last Sunday against the Seahawks for Smith and completed 38 of 55 passes for 295 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in a 20-15 loss. Then he got himself in hot water later that night with his maskless party with strippers, which was in violation of the league’s COVID-19 protocols.

The 23-year-old told reporters Wednesday he was not at a strip club but instead a private birthday party for his girlfriend, but it was a violation nonetheless.

“I know my team needs me,” Haskins told reporters. “I need to step up to the plate and I can’t be selfish and I need to stop getting in my own way. I’m putting things in motion as far as a plan for myself to be a better teammate and be more accountable and fix my issues that have brought me to this situation.”

The veteran Smith suffered a calf strain in a Week 14 win over the 49ers as Washington moved into first place in the NFC East. He was throwing to receivers during the individual period of practice Thursday, according to reports, but his status for Sunday’s game remained in question.
