What happens to Albert Haynesworth when suspension ends?
Defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth's four-game suspension without pay ends after Sunday's season finale against the New York Giants at FedEx Field.
On Monday, some Redskins players will report to Redskins Park and meet with Coach Mike Shanahan. Will Haynesworth be among them?
"That's a good question," Shanahan said after practice Thursday at Redskins Park. "That's a very good question."
Well, does Shanahan have a very good answer?
"No, I don't," he said. "If you do, would you let me know?"
Asked again whether he expected the two-time all-pro player to report to the complex next week, Shanahan said, "I really don't know. I really have no clue."
The NFL Players Association has filed an appeal of Haynesworth's four-game suspension. With an appeal pending, Shanahan is not sure whether Haynesworth, under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, would be permitted to rejoin the team next week.
"I haven't even thought about that to be honest with you," he said. "I'm not even sure what the rules are."
Would Shanahan be pleased if Haynesworth returned to the facility?
"Let's move on," Shanahan said.
Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said Haynesworth, through defensive lineman Vonnie Holliday, recently reached out to him.
"I'd like to" eventually speak with Haynesworth, Haslett said. "I'm not talking to him now because of the season, the grievance and all that stuff. But at some point, I'd like to talk to him."
