Haynesworth Skips Saturday Conditioning Test, No Practice

In a surprise move, Albert Haynesworth decided to rest his legs today.  Instead of try to pass his third conditioning test today – Haynesworth decided to take a day off and try to recuperate after two grueling days of 300 yard shuttle runs. Meanwhile, Haynesworth missed actual practice with the team for the third straight day… and was on the field for approximately 10 minutes watching the other players take their reps. Via the Washington Post:

He is expected to tackle the test again Sunday. Coaches had said Friday that Haynesworth would take his third crack at the test on Saturday morning, but coaches and team officials were apparently privy to the decision to wait until Sunday.

Haynesworth did make a brief appearance at practice, taking the field with a jersey but no helmet or pads. He stayed about 10 minutes, did not partake in any drills, but watched his fellow linemen and conferred with line coach Jacob Burney.
Though he’s missed the team’s first three practices, Haynesworth had worked with coaches on the far practice field following each practice.
