Haynesworth to Miss Season Opener?

Per Matt Mosley's article:

 

NFL.com's Jason La Canfora, a former Redskins beat man for The Post, delivered an interesting nugget Wednesday regarding Albert Haynesworth's status for the opener against the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 12. Citing an anonymous Skins source, La Canfora reported that Haynesworth is "far from assured" a starting spot against the Cowboys. Then La Canfora took the report to another level:

"Haynesworth could be deactivated for the Redskins' Week 1 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys, the source surmised, as coach Mike Shanahan continues to sort through what has been a troubling offseason with the high-priced defensive lineman," writes La Canfora.

Unless Haynesworth is injured or being punished, I don't see any reason why the Redskins would play him in a preseason game and then turn around and sit him in the first game of the regular season. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I think there's a good possibility Haynesworth comes off the bench against the Cowboys, but it's hard for me to believe he would be inactive for the game.


 Could this be a possibility?  I really hope not, our depth on the d-line is scary without Haynesworth and I feel like Dallas would run all over us, not to mention we've already been getting run over the entire preseason.  Do you think Shanahan would take it this far?  I think if Haynesworth continues his attitude since spewing off at the media two preseason games ago there should be no reason for deactivating him week one.

Who knows, hopefully this is just another one of those things that never comes to fruition.
