Ankle injury limits Albert Haynesworth in practice

Defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was limited in practice Wednesday because of an ankle injury, according to the Redskins' injury report.

It is unclear how much Haynesworth participated in practice as the Redskins began preparations to host the Houston Texans on Sunday. Haynesworth, a two-time all-pro selection, played but did not start in the season-opening victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

The Redskins and Tennessee Titans reportedly have had ongoing trade talks about Haynesworth, whom the Redskins have paid more than $32 million since February of 2009. Haynesworth has a salary of $3.6 million this season.

New York Giant Keith Bulluck, a former teammate of Haynesworth's, defends him, saying "I either play him or I trade him."

Hard to tell how much of the Haynesworth drama is media creation and how much is Albert being genuinely unhappy here.

If it is the latter, I'd happily ship him off to the Jets straight up for Braylon Edwards.

But since the Jets run a 3-4 as well, I guess he wouldn't be happy there either.

Very insightful Keith, thanks. Keith was also overheard saying:

I either stay awake or go to sleep
I either stand up or sit down
I either eat dessert or I don't

hessone, if you and your girlish attitude aren't careful I may end up giving you a pretty severe case of pink-eye.

Oh snap, what now d0uchenozzle.

Yes, Braylon Edwards. He and Carlos Rogers would be best friends. Imagine, TWO players we could be frustrated with for dropping every ball thrown near them.

Ho, ho. Big surprise this. AH92 is injured...

Seems like the same sort of phantom ankle injury that kept CP26 out of practice most of last season.

What a woofter.

Perhaps Albert should simply explain that he's "sick"

As in, sick of working,

sick of practicing

sick of trying to scheme up a new way to get good money for doing nothing special...

and sick of even trying to explain himself.

Always remember the guarantee that AH made to the Redskins Nation in Feb, 2009:

"You're not going to remember Albert Haynesworth as a bust...With the contract, it's going to be all on me.... My goal is to be the best player on the field and to eventually get to Hall of Fame status and be mentioned with Reggie White and Bruce Smith and all the greats."

THIS IS A RE-POST with a slight change, In CAPS.


What kind of blog is this? There was not even one Haynesworth article today. Not one. WTF is going on?

I think people are beginning to realize what a One Trick Pony he is, He can bullrush, Whoop-de-doo. Haloti Ngata, to name one guy, can bullrush, slant, play the piano and various other thingw asked of all pro tackles.

If and until Haynesworth learns the system, STAYS HEALTHY, and polishes those other skills, he's nothing but a rotation lineman, sort of a third-string Vonnie Holliday with a bad attitude..

rub some dirt on it and get back in the game.

Ain't no news like Haynesworth news. Haynesworth story by Reid/Maese number 9,999,999,999 and counting

Fat Albert is a walking (or is that flopping) joke. There is constantly something wrong with his body or mind. He never comes to the game with a mindset of being the best he can be - it is always tempered with an excuse that he is misunderstood and that he doesn't want to do this and that.

The sooner this cancer is removed and thrown away the better. He is occupying a roster spot that would be better used developing a young player who has the heart and drive to succeed. We can no longer wait for his one play that makes a difference in a game. We need someone who will give us a game or games of great plays without baggage.

I guess any excuse will do if you make three times what the coach makes.

I heard he slipped on a Krispy Kreme.

Yeah WR's have hands. Braylon Edwards has two gigantic pencil erasers for hands

Shouldn't be any drama with Albert if you watched the Dallas game.

I saw him trying to do spin moves, I saw him try to run around a block instead of fighting across the face of the blocker. These are things you teach your pee wee players to never do. A spin move or running around a blocker guarantees you will never ever be involved in that play.

He just does not look like even an average defensive lineman in the NFL. I can see why the coaches called his play in preseason awful. The only reason he is getting a chance to play is the big contract, the only reason he has the big contract is because of one season with the Titans, the only reason he had a big season with the Titans was because they schemed it so that he would get free lanes, also, he was motivated by only a big payday.

Mike Shanahan offered to set him free or take the big contract, but, he wanted Albert to give it everything he had if he took the money. Albert took the money and has given only a marginal effort. If somebody else can see something different, I'd like to know what game I could look at to see Albert giving a good effort. It sure wasn't against the Cardinals in preseason with their 2nd and 3rd stringers. He should have been a devasting force against them. It really, really wasn't against Dallas. He really was more awful against Dallas than he was against Arizona, but, hey, I guess it was Dallas 1st string and not an awful performance against Arizona's 3rd string. So, okay, he's improving.

Where did Jason Reid learn how to write? He starts out with a decent report about Haynesworth's injury situation and ends with a non-sequitur quote from a former teammate of AH. What's up with that? Can't the WaPo find a better beat reporter?

McNabb can recommend some treatment, a little electric stim with a dash of CHARACTER, the thing money can't buy
