Both Albert Haynesworth and Trent Williams, who hurt his arm Saturday, were going through drills, Mike Jones of reported..

Shout out to Commonwealth orthopedics and my nurse Mrs. Sarah Shealess than a minute ago via ƜberTwitter

Quarterback Donovan McNabb, who hurt his ankle in the Redskins' loss Saturday to the Ravens, was wearing a walking boot when the Redskins' locker room opened this morning. Rick Maese reported that it is precautionary. Albert Haynesworth declined comment on the brouhaha surround him and, asked when he'd talk next, told Maese: "Never."

Jason Reid tweets: London Fletcher and Albert Haynesworth "had a good talk" Monday morning, Fletcher said. Fletcher is convinced that Haynesworth is on board. [Hogs Haven aside: On smorgasbord maybe.]

Lorenzo Alexander said (via Mike Jones of of Haynesworth: 'you wish he'd keep things in house. . . Bad judgment.'

And more, Alexander-to-Jones on Twitter: "eventually this has gotta stop with the back and forth. . . but once we start winning some games it'll all be ok"

Phillip Daniels on Haynesworth's frustration with playing only the second half (via Jones): "I guess he was frustrated w[ith] when he played, but i played fourth quarter too. Just play football."

Carlos Rogers to Ryan O'Halloran on Haynesworth: "You just shake your head like, 'What's next?'"

Casey Rabach on Haynesworth (via Campbell)t: "If I was in that defensive line, I think it would be a little bit overwhelming. It would be a pain in the you-know-where"

The right arm of Trent Williams, who was wearing a sling in the second half of Saturday's game, was wrapped, Maese reports.

Rich Campbell tweets the Kareem Moore (knee) update: Reed Doughty: Kareem Moore not done for the season.

"It's something I've prepared for and I think [coaches] feel confident in me," Doughty told

With Moore expected to be out 4-to-6 weeks, the Redskins signed veteran safety Tyrone Carter. Former Redskins safety Matt Bowen tweets that he sees Tyrone Carter in multiple roles for special teams coach Danny Smith.

And, because you know you wanted to know what Romo -- er, Romanowski -- thinks:

Mike Shanahan means business!To win a Superbowl everyone needs to be on the same page. There is no "I" in TEAM. Albert wake up!less than a minute ago via web

McNabb has had a playing limp for years. After he takes a few licks in each game, he gets up limping and stays that way. Sometimes it makes him a more accurate QB.

Is there any worse sports cliche than "there is no I in team"? I mean, there's an I in champion.

Too much print on Albert, don't blame him for going silent.

Skins looked awful Saturday night. Zorn must have enjoyed the evening, doubt Dan Snyder had any fun at all.

The offensive line is not improved and Donovan is just too old to take the hits he will get...look for him to be out for the season by Game 3 of regular season.

Oh, and please have Dan Snyder offer Albert up to Jerry Jones...we would love to have him in Dallas!

THis Haynesworth melodrama is really getting old. I can't believe he is still on the team. The Redskins should show some moxy, and dump the creep, much like Phillie dumped T.O. Money doesn't seem to be the issue 'cause Snyder has plenty of it and doesn't seem to mind throwing it around and away.

Get rid of Fat Al!!!

And as I always reply, yes but there is an M and an E which spells me. So the team is stronger with ME, than without ME. ;)

Am I the only one who watched the video of Albert Haynesworth's comments and didn't think he was in any way, shape, or form "ranting" or "going off." He was making a few, soft spoken, observations. Was he critical? Sure, but he wasn't saying anything that wasn't true and he wasn't raising his voice either.

Look, the media is going to do what the media does: sell stories to the public. The media is a business and this story sells. But for rationale Skins fans, I hope they aren't getting too worked up about this. Albert will be in the starting lineup week 1 against Dallas and will be be a menace to opposing QBs all season long. Everyone just needs to relax and not pay too much attention to this "story."
