We won’t have a second consecutive summer full of stories about Albert Haynesworth’s inability to pass a conditioning test.
Haynesworth, whose inability to pass coach Mike Shanahan’s conditioning test last year was a major distraction for the Redskins, has now passed Patriots coach Bill Belichick’s conditioning test and is ready to practice.
Ian R. Rapoport of the Boston Herald reports that Haynesworth passed the test on his first attempt today. He didn’t try the conditioning test yesterday.
With that, Haynesworth is ready to practice. And Belichick is ready to get his new defensive tackle to work, rather than following Shanahan’s method of spending all of training camp in a battle of wills.
