Albert Haynesworth Reportedly Missed Practice Time Due To Hangover

New, 1 comment

We heard yesterday that Albert Haynesworth was deactivated for the Redskins' game against the Giants due to missing practice on Friday with an illness.

Now we're learning that his illness wasn't the flu, or a virus, or even "headaches." His illness was self-inflicted. His illness was a hangover, according to Ryan O'Halloran of CSN Washington.

Multiple sources tell @ that Haynesworth appeared “hung over” Friday morning and didn’t appear until defensive meeting started.

In his daily appearance on 106.7 The Fan's LaVar Arrington Show With Chad Dukes, beat reporter Grant Paulsen went on to suggest that many of the writers had speculated that Haynesworth looked hungover during the morning practice on Friday. Paulsen spoke with a defensive player in the locker room and was told that "players took notice in practice that he wasn't himself."

Wasn't himself? So he didn't need to be carted off the field due to being winded?

We'll have more on Haynesworth as the new twist in this story develops.
