Albert Haynesworth won't talk to reporters after practice

Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth does not plan to address reporters after practice, two people familiar with the situation said Saturday afternoon.

The Pro Bowler on Saturday morning passed the conditioning test Coach as mandated by Mike Shanahan to participate in full practice with the team. Haynesworth is expected to practice for the first time in 11-on-11 drills during the practice portion of Fan Appreciation Day at Redskins Park. A few moments ago, Haynesworth took the field with his teammates for the first time since training camp began.

Redskins media relations officials planned for Haynesworth to address reporters from a lectern used for group interviews. But Haynesworth is not prepared to comment on his situation, the sources said.

One of the sources indicated Haynesworth could always change his mind, but the source said he thought it was highly doubtful Haynesworth would speak with local reporters anytime soon. The nine-year veteran is expected to start at right defensive end in the team's new 3-4 scheme.

So apparently RI are NOT going to move on from AH and give us worthwhile updates on how players are doing in camp.

Shanahan (February-March): You're playing the position that I SAY you're going to play and I SAY you're playing nose tackle in my 3-4 defense!

Haynesworth (calmly): No, I'm not.

Shanahan (July-August): Like I said, you're playing defensive end and that's final!

Haynesworth (calmly): Whatever you say, coach. You're in control.

Hello Everyone,
Notice on the Skins roster that AH is listed as 6'6" and 335 lbs.
Is that an accurate weighin for this year, after his loss of weight?

Anyone know AH's weight?

Why would he want to talk to local reporters after they let him twist in the wind, including JR? He'd be wise to give an exclusive to one of the reporters who were supportive of him.
