6 takeaways from Day One of padded practice in Washington – Redskins Wire
We finally got to see the players in Washington go to work on Tuesday, as the team went through their first fully-padded practice, and media members were allowed to watch and take some pictures and video.
While it was incredibly cathartic to be able to hear the crack of pads, and see players flying around in the early D.C. morning air, there are a number of notable things that took place during Ron Rivera’s first full practice as the coach in Washington. Here are some of our biggest takeaways from the day.
Dwayne Haskins is clear QB1 as of now
This isn’t a major surprise, seeing as it’s been thought to be Dwayne Haskins’ job to lose all offseason, but with the addition of Kyle Allen to the QB room, and the surprising return of Alex Smith in the past month, a QB competition will be something to watch going forward. It was clear on Tuesday that Haskins is the QB1 thus far, as he has getting the bulk of first-team reps both in position drills and 11 vs. 11 work.
7v7 QB snaps

Throughout the rest of the training camp, we could potentially see a shake-up in the number of snaps each QB gets, but it seems clear that this is Haskins’ team, for now at least.
