Haynesworth To Have MRI

Via The Post

Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth went through what appeared to be some rigorous work at the close of Thursday morning’s workout, but Coach Mike Shanahan said the former Pro Bowler will have an MRI exam to determine the extent of the problem in his ailing knee.

Haynesworth missed the 13th practice session of the Redskins training camp Thursday morning. The knee problem, which developed last week, has prevented him from taking the conditioning test Shanahan requires of players who missed more than 50 percent of offseason workouts.

Haynesworth spent the entire morning practice session on the field, watching his teammates. He then spent more than 20 minutes after the practice working with defensive coordinator Jim Haslett, defensive line coach Jacob Burney and strength and conditioning coach Ray Wright. He hit a blocking sled and several tackling dummies, in addition to working on concepts of the Redskins’ new 3-4 defense.
