Haynesworth will play opener

Though it should come as no surprise, Albert Haynesworth will be in uniform and playing for the Washington Redskins on Sunday night according to Ed Werder of ESPN.

Werder reports that Haynesworth will play primarily on passing downs, and could wind up in the starting lineup if the Cowboys start the game with three receivers on the field. 

“It could be five plays or 35 plays,” Werder’s source said.

Presumably, the source and others around the Redskins want to see Haynesworth’s effort first.  The Washington Post reported earlier in the week Haynesworth was expected to play and coach Mike Shanahan essentially said so himself.  Chris Cooley also revealed (to Shanahan’s chagrin) that Haynesworth spent most of the week on the scout team.

With the humiliation portion of the week over with, Shanahan knows he now needs Haynesworth to help him win.

    The beast is back! He has been suitably humiliated. Shanny stood his ground and can stand tall. Albert did not capitulate much and can stand tall. Redskin fans showed up at camp wearing 92 jerseys proving to all that if you wear the burgundy and gold, you get unconditional love and forgiveness from true Redskin fans.

    ….and of course we all know that Cooley was telling the absolute truth
    …..that he would have no reason to lie
    ……that it is absolutely not possible this entire Haynesworth storyline is a total setup to keep the Cowboys off balance
    …..and lastly, we all know that CornFlorio 100% checks his facts before posting information here!

    Worst… free agent signing… ever.

    Would’t it be ironic…Skins playing the SB in Dallas’ stadium…RIP #21, wish you were here!

    Worst… free agent signing… ever.
    Thats a moronic statement from what I assume is a moron. As a Redskins fan for over 25 years, I can say that he is by far not the worst, and hell who knows, Shanhan goes in and says “Al were gonna trade you after the season, you work your ass off and you’ll have your pick of where you wanna go. Albert comes out beastly this year. And for the record, i cant stand the dude, I live in Knoxville, and have meet him….total D-Bag…but he is a hell of a player. After going through Zorn, I trust Shanahan till proven otherwise. And BTW, the worst signing would be Either Archultea or Lloyd…And yes you are a moron

    How bout some of the other Redskins players? I mean dude this freaking sucks you guys wont stop F*ing with this damn team!

  15. boysroll says: Sep 11, 2010 8:12 PM

    redskinz1…smoke another one pal. typical 4skin offseason comment. then u finish last again at 4-12. i c why your fan base is so bitter with high expectations like that to finish as one of the worst teams again in the NFL.
    Instead of setting a unrealistic goal of winning a SB…how about winning an fing nfc east game first as u were 0-6 last yr u fing LOSERS!!!!.
    What a bunch of DOPES!!!!!LMFAO.
    I hate dealing with ignorant people which is 90% of the 4skin base…..

  16. Raven Adam says: Sep 11, 2010 8:26 PM

    Wow whats up with all this Redskins Superbowl talk???
    weren’t you guys 4-12 last year… and you added McNabb and??? and??? oh yeah and ??? if you think that McNabb is 7 wins better than Campbell you are out of your minds.. Redskins go 8-8 tops.. you are the 4th best team in your division..

  17. DieHardSkinsFan21 says: Sep 11, 2010 8:50 PM

    NON-STORY. WHO CARES. The Skins finished 4-12. Why doesn’t PFT concentrate its attention on the Lions or the Bucs. You suck Rosenthal. You are as bad as Chad Dukes on 106.7 in DC.

  18. kovvboyzfan says: Sep 11, 2010 9:09 PM

    Of course he will only play on passing downs. That is just a nice way of saying he is too fat and still out of shape.
    FAIL TO THE DREADSKINS!!!

  19. ravensos says: Sep 11, 2010 9:15 PM

    i saw him out in Clarendon last night, he was absolutely destroying some wings.

    Mike Shanahan is going to play Albert Haynesworth now that is shocking! Whatever happened to the days when two coaches went out with teams and the best team won? None of this psychological warfare I may play this guy or may not BS.
    Mike Shanahan knows he has a totally crap team, the Cowboys could steam roll them any day of the week short of Chris Cooley, Fat Albert, and Dmac they have absolutely no relevant players in the NFL! PERIOD
    Shanahan is that guy who used to mess with you on the playground at school and always got his ass kicked! All he has done is get every Pro Bowl player on that team pissed at him doesn’t scream bleed for me on Sun now does it!
    If he wants to get pissed at someone and make them pass a physical he should put Dan Snyder on the field he screwed up this team! But hey I’m an Eagles fan so I’m happy to have 2 wins in the division every year keep up the good work boys.

    RavenAdam, No Redskins fan said Superbowl we leave that to Gutter Trash up north from us, you know Those Prisner thugs and Murders on that team up north at cell block Baltimore.

    Right on!
    Crap on us, treat us like fools…we true Redskin fans literally cannot get enough abuse. It’s what we live for!

    Skins fans better hope he all of a sudden becomes a team player. If he is a stat whore, your entire scheme is screwed and could get gashed for big yards when he is on the field. He may be your best DL but if he is doing his own thing he is a liability.

    Actually, the new coaching staff is playing it smart, also btw if ur Eagles ever gave Dmac a running game, they may have won multeple SB’s, but they wanted him to pass the f’n ball 80% of the time…G’luck Kolb

  26. bake says: Sep 11, 2010 10:41 PM

    practice squad……love it….
    but as a skins fan, I gotta tell ya. If we beat the cowboys I’ll be Shocked and it will mean bad things for Dallas’ prospects this season…But I sure hope so…

    cbrofob-cowboysroll(overforotherboys) dude, why are you always so angry? move out of your parents house and get a girlfriend already. then when you do maybe you’ll stop using LMFAO, like 12y/o girls do. HAIL NOW YA DAMN ASS PIRATE.

    Boysroll just never knows when to quit. His ridiculous remarks are pretty ignorant, and he seems to have an obsession with the Redskins. It’s ok to admit were cool. Win or lose I’m with them. Cowboys are going down tomorrow night, and remember that they’ll be missing 3 offensive linemen for the game. Romo will be running for his life LMAO. But in all fairness, I’ll give it to boysroll, the Cowboys won a playoff game last season for the first time since 1996! They then got blown out by the Vikings and Keith Brooking started crying because he couldn’t take the pounding anymore.
