Haynesworth Passes Conditioning Test


Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth passed the team's conditioning test Saturday, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Haynesworth had skipped the test for a fourth straight day Friday and missed nearly all of another practice, a day after a precautionary MRI exam showed no structural damage on his sore left knee.

Haynesworth had not been allowed to fully practice until he passed the test, which consisted of two 300-yard back-and-forth shuttle sprints. He ran the tests in 66 and 70 seconds.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan bristled Friday when asked if he regretted how Haynesworth's conditioning test had become somewhat of a "circus."


"There has been no circus here at all," Shanahan said. "Our guys are coming here and getting down to business."

Haynesworth failed the test each of the first two days of training camp, and his knee had hampered his efforts to try again.

He started the test Monday but stopped when the knee acted up.

Persistent soreness in the knee prompted the Redskins to order an MRI on Thursday, a test Shanahan called a "preventative measure."

The knee has been bothering Haynesworth for several years, and last year he missed two days of training camp to have fluid injected into it.


Good news on AH! I'm sure he'll be ready to stomp some heads Week 1.

O yea and SUCK IT KEVIN! Your boy is back, haha...  Still not sure why you thought he wouldn t play this year.
