Washington quarterback Dwayne Haskins returned to practice Friday after missing the past two days with an illness, but coach Ron Rivera said he was unsure if the 23-year-old would travel with the team to New Jersey for Sunday’s against the New York Giants.

Haskins was a full participant in practice and was not listed as questionable or out. Rivera, though, didn’t commit to Haskins making the trip.

“We’ll see what happens and how he is [Saturday],” Rivera said. “He’s got a little bit of a stomach ailment and we’ll go from there.”

If Haskins makes the trip, he is likely to be inactive Sunday. Haskins was demoted last week from starter to third string, with Kyle Allen and Alex Smith ahead of him on the depth chart. Allen will start against the Giants.

Rivera said Haskins “looked good” in Friday’s practice.

“He went out and did the things that he was supposed to,” Rivera said. “It was good to see him out there. A bunch of his teammates came up and dapped him up to let him know they were glad to have him back. That’s what I was hoping for.” 

Washington, meanwhile, activated right guard Brandon Scherff off injured reserve Friday, paving the way for his return from a knee injury. To make room on the roster, Washington placed cornerback Greg Stroman (foot) on injured reserve.
