Albert Haynesworth misses Redskins practice, may not play Saturday

Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said this morning that he is uncertain whether defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth will be able to play in the preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday at FedEx Field.

Shanahan said Haynesworth was bothered by a headache, according to tweets by Rick Maese and Rich Campbell. Haynesworth missed most of practice Tuesday and all of Wednesday because of what Shanahan said was dehydration caused by a heat-related issue. He did not practice today.

Shanahan indicated that starters may take 30 snaps Saturday night. He reiterated that Larry Johnson will start at running back but said that Clinton Portis would be used in certain situations.

Malcolm Kelly missed practice today. Shanahan did not specify whether that had to anything to do with a Wednesday court date related to at least three misdemeanor traffic citations.

Wide receiver Mike Furrey is "done for the year, at least," according to Chris Russell of ESPN980.

Dan Steinberg promises a DC SportsBog update soon on a Haynesworth skit performed by three Redskins rookies involving Haynesworth injuring his knee while using the toilet.

Shanahan joked about a player doing an impression of him in rookie talent show: ''Only one guy did that... and we cut him last night.''less than a minute ago via txt
