Just when things look to improving in this ongoing saga, it takes a new turn. The drama that has pitted Albert Haynesworth against Mike Shanahan since April 2010 has suddenly gotten worse once again.
The big defensive tackle missed practice on Friday due to illness, and was a surprise inclusion on the inactive list for the Redskins' big NFC East clash against the Giants today. But according to Kelli Johnson of CSN-Washington, there may be more to this progressing story.
In addition to missing Fri practice because he was sick, I'm told Shanahan didn't feel like Haynesworth practiced well on Thurs;unbelievable
Today's game will be the fourth that Haynesworth misses this season. He missed the Redskins' Week 2 matchup against the Texans due to a minor injury, then missed back-to-back games against the Packers and Colts due to a death in the family.
Haynesworth's absense from the Colts game was highly criticized on both sides. The lineman said he could have played, but was held out because he had missed practices during the week.
Could we be seeing something similiar today? Looks like.
