Albert Haynesworth, Redskins trade buzz continues
Updated at 1:25 p.m.
Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan declined to discuss Albert Haynesworth's playing status in a conference call with members of the Dallas media today.
"We don't talk about who's going to come to the game for obvious reasons, whether it's wide receivers, defensive line, defensive backs," Shanahan said. "Just like Dallas doesn't tell us who their nickel package is."
Shanahan did say that he hasn't found the Haynesworth situation to be too draining.
"Not really to be honest with you," Shanahan said. "We focus on our jobs every day. You've got a job to do. A lot of attention is brought to it, but I think we've handled it well."

The Redskins resume preparations for playing the Cowboys today at Redskins Park -- you might have heard that it's Dallas Week -- and as they head to work, there's no sign that the big story -- you might have heard they'd like to part ways with Albert Haynesworth -- is going away.
"I got a hint last night," said Chris Mortensen on ESPN's "Mike and Mike" show, "that other teams have been called" by the Redskins regarding a trade involving Haynesworth, who is regarded as being something of a pill by his head coach. Mortensen adds that a deal is probably not doable.
Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen denied the talk Tuesday and continued to do so today. According to a tweet by Larry Weisman of the Redskins: "#Redskins GM Bruce Allen in phone call to WTOP radio denied shopping DT Albert Haynesworth. Rumors have been abundant."
And the NFL Network's Scott Hanson, reporting from Redskins Park, tweeted: "Fwiw: My producer just told me Haynesworth was one of the last players to arrive today at Redskins Park."
