Albert Haynesworth to take conditioning test Saturday

Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth will take Mike Shanahan's conditioning test again Saturday, sources have told Jason Reid.

Haynesworth, who will not be allowed to practice with the team until he passes it, has been recovering from knee soreness. He underwent an MRI Thursday that revealed no structural damage.

Saturday would be an interesting day on which to take the test. It's the team's annual Fan Appreciation Day at Redskins Park. Shanahan has said that he plans to run a limited practice tomorrow.

The weather for Haynesworth's attempt promises to be ideal tomorrow, according to the Capital Weather Gang...80s with humidity not climbing until late afternoon. A lovely day in which to attempt 300-yard shuttle runs.

Good grief, I'm eager to see this all behind us. Here's hoping the fat man gets it done tomorrow.

Let's get back to the normal circus that is training camp, is what I'm sayin'

I'm hoping that the guy who's on the stopwatch has a really slow thumb...maybe they can get Merril Hoge--he helped Golic mightily.

Maybe Fan Appreciation day will help AH pass this test? I sure hope so as this has become a comical charade.

The dude is rapidly becoming a liability. He could be a great player and I hope he becomes just that. But he gets winded easily and he is a slacker. Those are apparent by number of practices he missed last year. I guess you can't blame him for taking the $100 mil that Ceratto gave him. Ceratto was famous for paying too much for worthless players. I won't yet put Haynesworth in the "worthless" category, but Ceratto obviously paid him too much. (Exactly where did Jason "Twinkle Toes" Taylor end up, anyways?) Thankfully, there is no salary cap this yare and our owner, Danny Boy, has too much cash to throw away (at season ticket holders' expense). Thankfully, the tide is turning. Allen was a great choice. Shanahan too. If only Danny can keep his hands out of the cookie jar, we might have a chance to turn the ship around. We'll see. Any bets that Haynesworth will be on the team next year? Bet you could get some pretty good odds on that in Vegas. But I wouldn't take them. At the moment, the guy seems like a slacker with a bad knee. It's the last of Ceratto's long, failed, legacy.

I'm just hoping that Cindy will be there with stopwatch in hand to assure that the coaches don't secretly cut Albert any slack. I am perfectly happy to have him sitting on the sideline unless and until he can run this drill in less than 71 and 73 seconds. I don't care about anything else in the whole entire universe. Except for speedboats. Whoa, man, do I dig speedboats!

pt393whatever's post is more relevant than all those people who use the word "fat" about every five words in their posts.

Albert Hayne(sonot)worth(it)is representative of why we will have another losing season.
No discipline. No leadership. Its just too hard for the leadership group

Incredible.. Haynesworth taking the test on Fan Appreciation Day? He better pass!

Posted by: RedCherokee | August 7, 2010 12:41 AM | Report abuse

Have him chase a stripper like a greyhound chasing a mechanical rabbit and he'll pass it easy....

I am as tired as everyone hearing about Fat Albert. But, I am shocked the majority thinks he has it in him to PASS the conditioning test. Just because it's Fan Apreciation Day? Are the 28,000 plus going to root him on or boo him? I say Fat Albert because as soon as he can eat heartily again, and keep from playing MUCH IF ANY 3-4 NT, he will quickly gain 1/2 or more of the weight back. Because of the weightloss-at-all-cost-regimen-he-used, we don't even know yet his strength level. Maybe he could careless and just want out. Time will tell. HEY-HEY-HEY IT'S FAT ALBERT!

Absolutely hysterical! A FAT ALBERT MUST SEE!

Check out the rest of these NFL cartoons from 2003-2010! The Redskins have a lot of great goofs during this Dannyboy tenure!

Memo to whoever is holding the stopwatch: PASS HIM REGARDLESS OF HIS TIME.

Frankly, those comments that contain the word "fat" I just stop reading and move on to the next one because I know they are not making any serious point.

Just get it done!!! You can make everything right this year and this is the first step...

Posted by: kmo5 | August 7, 2010 6:39 AM | Report abuse


It's a circus out there with Albert as the ring leader. There are Minor League Football teams having their "fans" take the same test to qualify for free tickets for their teams season... Just incredible!!! Anyway, I do hope that (finally) Albert gets his lazy butt in gear and takes this test... And PASSES IT. So the Redskins can get on with their pre~season and then regular season without too much more garbage.

Maybe they accidentally set up the cones 23 yards apart?

Maybe the guy timing doesn't hit the stopwatch exactly on time?

Maybe they run the test on the far side of the field where onlookers can't see?

Razor lip has put mr. Checker through too much and there is no way he will legitimately pass this test. guaranteed he will either auto-pass or just quit. he can run 3 hundy but not make the stops at 25 and sprint the other way. 3x100 yes. 12x25 negatory. you will see stephon heyer in the pro bowl first.

Posted by: doyouktt | August 7, 2010 7:42 AM | Report abuse

he passed it before he took it. put it in stone. he can't run 300 yds at 12 x 25 in under 2 days.

Maybe Danny told Shanny that either Fat Albert passes your test or find another job?
