Report: Albert Haynesworth Will Miss Sunday's Game Against Packers

On Sunday, the Redskins will be without their highest paid player for the second time this season.

It was easy to criticize Albert Haynesworth during the offseason and preseason for not giving his best effort. We can't criticize him this time though, as he'll be missing Sunday's NFC matchup against the Green Bay Packers under tragic circumstances.

Haynesworth's half-brother Lance McCoy passed away on Thursday night following a motorcycle accident in Nashville. The Washington Post is reporting that Haynesworth will be out of the game Sunday to attend the funeral services in Tennessee.

Redskins officials have been in contact with people close to Haynesworth and the two-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman plans to be with his family away from Washington for several days, the sources said.

According to NFL.com and the AP, nose tackle Anthony Bryant is likely to take Haynesworth's place in the lineup after missing the past two games due to a concussion.
