Albert Haynesworth arrived at FedEx Field tonight with the hope that he would be able to play.
In a conversation with Andrea Kramer of NBC Sports, Haynesworth said that his conditioning was not an issue, and that he would've "loved to play" tonight against the Colts. He also told Kramer that “football is my escape from life," indicating that he was mentally ready to go.
Kramer also gave us some additional details of what Haynesworth had to go through this week.
The team had him run extra sprints Saturday and even this morning. Haynesworth said he thought he could still be moved by Tuesday’s trade deadline and reiterated to me that he does not fit this defensive scheme but understands they have a lot of money invested in him.
This isn't over.
