Redskins Training Camp: Headache Kept Albert Haynesworth Out Of Practice

As it turns out, Albert Haynesworth missed practice today due to a headache, not heat exhaustion. At least that's what Mike Shanahan said.

"I talked to him today, and I thought it was dehydration," Shanahan said. "He felt that his head was bothering him more than it was dehydration. He wasn't feeling good, basically, is what it was. That's why he didn't practice."    

Shanahan added that it remains unclear whether Haynesworth would play in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens. I don't know about you, but it seems odd to me that a headache would keep a player out of practice this long. Maybe it's more serious than I thought, but at face value, it certainly doesn't look good for Haynesworth.
