Maybe Haynesworth won't play in opener

A. Haynesworth didn't perform well against Arizona, and now it's being reported he might not play the season opener against Dallas (Getty). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

We told you a couple days ago that it was possible that Redskins coach Mike Shanahan would make DT Albert Haynesworth inactive for Washington’s season-opener. I was skeptical about this theory – aside from just an absolute hellacious case of Shanahan holding a grudge, it didn’t make much sense to me - but there’s more news out there tonight that (sort of) confirms the original news.

According to Jason Reid of the Washington Post, Haynesworth’s unimpressive showing in the team’s fourth preseason game has led to renewed thoughts that the $100 million man isn’t committed to the team.

From the Post:

Haynesworth was "awful" Thursday during the Cardinals' 20-10 victory at University of Phoenix Stadium, said two of the team sources who recently reviewed game film. It often appeared he gave little effort while participating in 49 of the Redskins' 55 defensive plays. On the few occasions he did play hard, the two sources said, Haynesworth failed to adhere to the principles of the new 3-4 scheme. He was credited with four tackles, including three unassisted.

All three sources indicated that Coach Mike Shanahan has lost his patience with the ongoing Haynesworth drama. During practice at Redskins Park Saturday, Haynesworth took part in very few plays, one of the sources said. He was moved back to nose tackle -- he had been working primarily at right end recently -- and removed from the nickel package.

If this is true (and there’s no reason to believe it isn’t true), it’s hard to see how Haynesworth would be active when Washington plays host to Dallas on Sept. 12.

The Redskins didn’t comment, saying Shanahan will address the media Monday.
