Albert Haynesworth may be inactive Sunday

By Jason Reid

Barring a last-minute change, Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth will be inactive for today's game against the New York Giants, according to a person familiar with the situation.

Apparently, Coach Mike Shanahan decided to list the two-time all-pro player as inactive because he sat out practice Friday with an illness. Haynesworth is healthy enough to play and expected to have a major role against the Giants at New Meadowlands Stadium, the team source said.

Although Haynesworth does not play in Washington's base 3-4 defense, he has been effective rushing the passer in the team's nickel packages. The nine-year veteran has missed three games this season.

Haynesworth sat out one game because of a foot injury, was inactive the week his younger brother was killed in a motorcycle accident and was held out by Shanahan the week he returned to the team. In eight games, Haynesworth has been credited with 13 unassisted tackles and 2.5 sacks.

He recorded a half sack in the loss to the Minnesota Vikings last week. In February of 2009, owner Daniel M. Snyder gave Haynesworth a contract that guaranteed the two-time Pro Bowler a then-record $41 million. He has not started a game this season.

Hope this means that Jarmon gets the AH reps. Might as well see if Jarmon is part of the solution going forward. BTW I thought HC Shanny said earlier in the year that Wednesday practice was the most important practice not to miss. Some more head games by the HC. These games need to bring more results on the field next year.

AH92 out of today's game due to an illness
of some sort? Probably another attitude

Discipline, making a point, and sending a message are more important than winning.
Geeeezzzzzooooooflip!

This is getting ridiculous. I'm starting to think Shanahan is aiming for a top 10 pick.

Get OVER your monster EGO, Shanahan! This guy is really starting to wear on me. "everything is an evaluation process....! Yeah, most of your offensive players are horrible. I can evaluate that, prick! Activate Haynsworh. I would have no problem with Snyder intervening on this. He's sick one day?!

It kills me to see Fat Albert sitting on the sideline.

Jim Haslett has to go and Shanny and Son should follow. This team is an embarrassment. Haslett has undone ten years of respectable defense in Washington. This is like watching a troop of Girl Scouts playing in a game (no offense to the Girl Scouts).

Ever wonder about all the free stuff you see on the web? It appears like everybody wants to give stuff away for nothing, nada, zilch. But are these items truly free of charge? If so, how can these companies afford to give away all of these coupons and samples? It’s truly all about you, the consumer. We live in a very competitive world marketplace place. The internet has upped the ante in terms of who could be seen and heard via all with the mass media. Now companies need to make lots of noise and this is one way that can do it. One of the best place on the web is called "123 Get Samples" and get your free stuffs
