Haskins, who was signed by the Steelers Jan. 21 after being released by the Washington Football Team, has been listed as the team’s third-team quarterback and hasn’t been in uniform for games, but he was dressed Sunday. He was the team’s second-string quarterback behind Mason Rudolph after starter Ben Roethisberger missed the game due to being placed on the team’s COVID-19 list.
NFL Network reporter Aditi Kinkhabwala took to Twitter Monday to say Haskins didn’t look ready to play.
Kinkhabwala said later during a Monday interview on KDKA (93.7 FM) that she also observed coaches weren’t happy with Haskins before the game.
The team had no immediate comment on the report, but the Steelers also signed former New York Jets quarterback James Morgan.
While at Ohio State, Haskins claimed the Big Ten’s single-season passing and touchdown records by throwing for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns in 2018.
