Report: Redskins 'Leaning Towards' Deactivitating Albert Haynesworth

When Albert Haynesworth missed last Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers, he was given a pass since he was spending time with his family following the tragic death of his half brother that Thursday.

Haynesworth did not return to practice in Ashburn until Thursday this week however, and now it appears likely that he will miss a second consecutive game due to the same incident. Coach Mike Shanahan is concerned that Haynesworth is not yet in playing shape, and according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, the Redskins may leave him out of the lineup once again.

Hearing that Skins are strongly leaning toward deactivating Haynesworth this game. Unless they make a last-sec change, he'll sit out

If Glazer's report is accurate, Haynesworth will have missed three out of six games so far in 2010.
