NFL star Dwayne Haskins' wife faces domestic violence charge
The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback suffered a split upper lip and tooth damage after being punched by Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins who has been arrested.
When the words 'domestic violence' and 'NFL player' are reported in the headlines, the athlete is usually on the wrong side of the assault, being the accused rather than the victim. But there has been another rare occasion where this is reversed.
Steelers QB Haskins sees wife arrested
The wife of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins was arrested in Las Vegas and faces a domestic violence charge stemming from an alleged assault earlier this month, multiple media outlets reported. Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins faces a felony charge of battery and domestic violence resulting in bodily harm.

Haskins sustained a split upper lip and lost at least part of a tooth after reportedly being punched in the face by Gondrezick-Haskins during the 3 July incident at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Per KLAS and KTNV in Las Vegas, he was treated for injuries at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center. She is due in court on 3 August.
"We are aware of the situation but will have no comment," the Steelers said Thursday.
Haskins, 24, signed a one-year deal with the Steelers in January after being released by the Washington Football Team the previous month. The former first-round pick (15th overall in 2019) is expected to compete for a backup job behind Ben Roethlisberger.
Haskins was 3-10 as a starter in Washington. His release came after an unmasked trip to a nightclub - a violation of the league's covid-19 protocol. In the wake of that incident, the team fined him $40,000 and stripped him of his captaincy.
The same people making all these jokes and laughing about Dwayne Haskins being a victim of domestic violence, are the same people that would’ve been calling for his HEAD if the roles were flipped!— Cardale Jones (@CJ1two) July 15, 2021
No form of violence towards ANYONE is acceptable and damn sure isn’t funny.
Haskins has completed 60.1 percent (267 of 444) of his passes for 2,804 yards with 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 16 career games (13 starts).
Haskins is not the first
While Haskins' case is noteworthy for being the victim and not the perpetrator in an NFL world where domestic violence has unfortunately become a recurring story, the current Steelers quarterback is not the first to suffer serious injuries as a result of a marital dispute.
In 2011, star wide receiver Brandon Marshall - at the time with the Miami Dolphins - was stabbed in the stomach by his wife during an argument. By the time police showed up at the scene, she said she did it "in self-defense," though she was later arrested. She was not formally charged.
