Albert Haynesworth: Status quo

On the sixth day of Redskins' training camp, the Albert Haynesworth update amounts to this: Status quo.

Haynesworth watched the Redskins' morning workout with the rest of the defensive linemen, often wearing his helmet, but he did not attempt the conditioning drill that Coach Mike Shanahan has said he must pass before he participates in practice. Shanahan said after the session that Haynesworth's balky knee prevented him from taking the test for the fourth straight day.

"Albert, as you could see, was out there watching practice today, and had a little work afterwards with walk-throughs and some agility drills," Shanahan said. "But his knee's still bothering him, and when he's ready to try to take that test again, he'll take it."

Shanahan, though, clearly doesn't believe the knee problem is something that will prevent him from taking the test - which consists of back-to-back 300-yard shuttle runs - for much longer. Asked if the knee was at the point where it might require an MRI exam, Shanahan said, "No, it's not."

Haynesworth could, in theory, take the test again Wednesday morning.

The only other Redskin to miss even a single practice is third-year wide receiver Malcolm Kelly, who is struggling to get past a hamstring problem. Shanahan said Kelly, who worked with trainers on the sideline Tuesday morning, isn't close to returning to the field.

"I don't think it'll be in the next couple days," Shanahan said. "Still a little bit tight, still a little bit sore. The trainers have been pushing him a little bit, and you can see that he's a little ways away from going full-speed."

Where is the MK12 defenders saying, "Its only a hamstring tweak!"?

Dude lets an injury linger like no other...

This is the dumbest AH update of all time, as 4th would say "no news, is no news"

Coach Brad Childress insisted Tuesday afternoon that he was not told Brett Favre is retiring.
Childress has spoken to Favre within the last 24 hours, and he still considers the situation "fluid." Vikings players also told beat writers Tuesday that nothing has changed regarding Favre's status with the team.

I could have told you Kelly was going to set himself back by playing at full speed too soon. Sucks -- I was really hoping to see big things from him after his knee surgery in 2008. Now I have to peg him as a favorite for the chopping block.

Truly a waste of a pick.

Mk will be traded or cut. He's too injury prone

His hands are good but he can't stay on the field....

See ya

i wanted okung over williams...

Okung has shut down top de/lbs in college, trent didn't

Okung held out orakpo his senior yr rak couldn't sniff there qb

Williams was holding off sergio kindle, struggling, hopefully williams is better suited for our zone scheme

Posted by: brandon_in_cali | August 3, 2010 12:59 PM | Report abuse

Haynesworth will start, maybe traded after the season if he performs

Kelly will be cut or used in a minor trade

Shanny has taken his time to evaluate these guys n we slowly are starting to see hpw he feels...

Were better with hayny so we need him, kelly isn't shannys guy we kno cuz shanny passed on him in the draft n I feel like its about to happen again

Shanahan is correct. AH is totally out of shape. Mike Golic, former Def. linesman, 16 years retired and with no practice, passed the test the first time as shown on ESPN.

Looks like Kelly is heading for an injury settlement. Dude can always find work in Buffalo - they don't have any wr's.

Posted by: coparker5 | August 3, 2010 1:09 PM | Report abuse

I have to say there have been fewer hamstring issues this season than there have been in the past. MK is the only one, right? Since Santana lost his Canadian connection he actually seems to be healthier. Usually he is the one with the hamstring problems.

Posted by: RedSkinHead | August 3, 2010 1:10 PM | Report abuse

I trust Shanny made the right pick with Williams. His last first round LT (Clady) didn't turn out so bad. Immediately dominant as a rookie, let's hope for the same.

ON A LATTER NOTE... Was anyone watching NFL network right before they started raping the Brett Favre story???? The regularly scheduled program at the time was the "Americas Game" featuring the '92 cowgirls

Settle down, Redskin Nation. I can assure you my client will be ready to bust some heads on September 12 when we're staring the Cowgirls in their ugly faces.

As best as I can tell, the WaPo is providing multiple updates on the least active of players in order to ramp up the ol' blogging totals (I haven't the faintest idea why Albert is so controversial).

Anyway, I have one question for all of you spewing venom and hate at Albert for not taking this stupid "track guy" test: Who'd you rather have giving Dallas' left tackle hell and causing Romo to have a bad case of "bubble guts" - Albert or that skinny punk Usain Bolt?

I thought so.

Alright for now. Gotta go. Currently setting up financial planning classes for Mr. Haynesworth. Lots of crazy people out there trying to separate a good man from his money.

I am 39 and despite being handsome and in great shape by anyone's definition, my athletic career ended when most folks' in here did - in high school.

That said, I would be my house that I could pass that stupid excuse for a fitness test on time, smoking 4 cigarettes and one doobie while carrying all 3 Lombardi trophies.

Book it and start taking action.

See, now the shame of all this is that Jason Reid's pimping for a spot at TMZ has sullied the good name of some of the other bloggers who actually, um, I dunno, go to the park, quote actual people, and don't pretend their stories about their man crushes are based on emails from posters on this board.

Dissapointed by Fat Albert's Performance last year? Get used to it.

Turns out that Fat Albert's performance last year was an ABOVE AVERAGE perfomance for him

Last year Fat Albert had 37 tackles and 4 sacks. Over his career, he has averaged 38.5 tackles per season, and 3.5 sacks per season. Take away his "contract season" and his averages drop to 36.7 tackles per season and only 2.8 sacks per season.

I believe Bolt could give us plenty of snaps at nose tackle. I see at least both femurs snapping, a tibia, most definitely a tail bone, and probably a bakers dozen of digits.

Some 11-on-11 Action

Players remain on the far field, and it’s tough to see the action from my vantage point. Here are some of the highlights:

London Fletcher blitzed through a lane and dragged down Willie Parker on a run to the right.
Donovan McNabb completed a quick pass across the middle to Santana Moss for a short gain.
Great block by Trent Williams on Brian Orakpo. Williams pushed Orakpo around McNabb, giving the quarterback time to target Roydell Williams downfield. The ball bounced off Roydell Williams – incomplete.
McNabb handed off to Clinton Portis on a draw play. Maake Kemoeatu and his 6-5, 350-pound frame seemed to devour Portis on the tackle. Short gain.
Good coverage by H.B. Blades on a short pass to Ryan Torain. Blades’ physicality helped break up the pass to Torain.
Rex Grossman overthrew Devin Thomas on a short pass to the left.
Next play, Grossman went right back to Thomas on an outside route and completed the pass ahead of coverage by Justin Tryon and Reed Doughty.
Fumbled snap by Grossman, and the ball slipped behind him. He dove after the fumble, but a host of defenders, all clad in burgundy jerseys, converged on the ball. Tough to see who recovered the fumble, but it’s safe to say it was a defender.

+1 on Kelly as a wasted pick...but like someone else said...2 of 3 ain't bad...let's just hope Thomas and Davis are both ready to dominate this year...we've seen the flashes...now let's see the consistency!
