The Patriots play the Lions tonight in Detroit. One guy who won’t be playing is defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth.
Tom Curran of CSNNE.com reports that, even though Haynesworth has practiced all week, he’s not expected to make his game-situation debut in New England’s Week Three contest.
Acquired last month in a trade with the Redskins, Haynesworth had a 20-day absence from practice. He returned on Tuesday, a day after pleading no contest to simple assault in D.C.
