This season has been anything but smooth for the Washington Redskins. A major reason for the team's lack of success this season on offense is that Dwayne Haskins hasn't developed at quarterback.

Haskins was considered a project heading into the NFL Draft because of his inexperience. However, the former Ohio State star has so much potential that he went in the first round.

Unfortunately for the Redskins, the young gunslinger has been a turnover machine in limited reps this season.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo is reporting that Haskins hasn't spent enough time preparing for each game. He also said that Adrian Peterson told Washington's 2019 first-round pick to dig into the playbook.

Peterson responded to those claims and denied what Garafolo reported.

"If you didn’t hear something direct from me, please don’t attribute it to me," Peterson wrote on Twitter. "I believe in Dwayne and his potential. With more time, support & commitment, he can grown like any other rookie player."

Now, the 22-year-old quarterback has fired back at NFL Network.

Haskins called this story false, saying "Please don't involve me in this bs media narrative."

Whether or not this narrative is true, the reality is that Haskins doesn't look ready to start just yet.

Unless Haskins shows drastic improvement over the next few weeks, the Redskins will continue to face questions about their rookie quarterback.

The road only gets tougher for the Redskins as they'll face the Buffalo Bills next Sunday.
