Albert Haynesworth Fined $7,500 By NFL For Blind Side Block

Just when it seemed like things were getting better for Albert Haynesworth, the NFL stepped in and said "wait a minute."

Via ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the NFL fined the Redskins defensive tackle $7,500 for a blindside block on Chicago Bears offensive lineman J'Marcus Webb. The block came in the third quarter, when Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall returned a Jay Cutler interception 92 yards for what proved to be the game-winning score.

Haynesworth's block came away from the play, though he was not penalized on the play.
