More On Haynesworth Condition, Shanahan Statement

Albert Haynesworth has been getting a lot of grief for not being able to pass his conditioning test when he finally showed up to practice with the Washington Redskins. Turns out, according to the Washington Post, the defensive lineman’s got rhabdomyolysis, “a condition marked by the breakdown of skeletal muscle and the release of myoglobin in the bloodstream.”

Haynesworth is unhappy with coach Mike Shanahan because he thinks the coach “mischaracterizing his ailment as a mere headache. And Shanahan is no fan of Haynesworth, either.

“One thing for sure that is clear to me is that Albert has gotten away in the past with playing without practicing,” Shanahan said yesterday, according to the Post. “That will not happen under this regime. If he’s going to play, he’s going to practice, and that is the same with every player here. The days of him playing without practicing are over. And that, to me, says it all.”

This relationship can’t seem to get much worse than it already is.
