Haynesworth Likely Facing Discipline By League
NASHVILLE--Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth can expect to be disciplined by the league for his actions during today's game against the Dallas Cowboys.
After Cowboys tailback Julius Jones scored a third-quarter touchdown, Haynesworth kicked Dallas center Andre Gurode twice in the head while Gurode was lying on the ground. The first kick knocked off Gurode's helmet. The second, to Gurode's bare head, resulted in a gash that had Gurode taken to the locker room soon thereafter. He received stitches above his left eye and returned later to the Cowboys' sideline.
Haynesworth was ejected from the game. He slammed his helmet to the ground as two officials escorted him off the field, resulting in a second 15-yard penalty. Titans Coach Jeff Fisher stepped between the angry Haynesworth and the officials and scolded Haynesworth.
Ray Anderson, the NFL's senior vice president of football operations, attended the game and watched from the press box.
