Once again, trouble has found NFL quarterback Dwayne Haskins.
The former first-round draft pick, who is currently a backup for the Pittsburgh Steelers, finds himself in the headlines again after it was revealed his wife of less than six months knocked his tooth out during a recent squabble in Las Vegas, according to multiple reports.
Ironically, the 24-year-old Haskins and wife Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins were in Vegas earlier this month with friends to renew their wedding vows.
But things went south during the trip after Gondrezick-Haskins reportedly punched her husband after she learned Haskins and his friends went to a nightclub without waiting for his wife and her friends.
Haskins, a former first-round draft choice of the Washington Football Team before being released last season, was treated for facial injuries at a local hospital in Sin City. Police officers found the missing tooth in the couple’s hotel room, according to the report.
Haskins reportedly told a security officer he wanted his wife out of his room because, “she hit me and cut my lip open.”
Gondrezick-Haskins is due back in court on Aug. 3. However, according to an Instagram photo, Haskins posted a photo of the couple embracing while his wife displays her wedding ring. The caption read, “Couldn’t make you wait forever, for forever. This is forever.”
Haskins, who starred at Ohio St. before being drafted, is no stranger to adversity. The QB was released by Washington last season after losing his starting job and being fined $40,000 for violating the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols after partying without a mask.
He was signed by the Steelers after signing a $850,000 contract in January.
