Albert Haynesworth rests this morning

Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth did not attempt the team’s conditioning test this morning, according to multiple sources with knowledge of situation.

Haynesworth’s status for the 8:30 a.m. practice is unclear, but coach Mike Shanahan has said that Haynesworth won’t practice until he passes the test, which includes two timed sets of six 50-yard shuttle runs.

Yesterday, defensive lineman Phillip Daniels suggested that the test becomes more difficult the more you try it. Daniels said that your legs wear out and can’t recover. Although strength and conditioning coach Ray Wright refuted that notion, it seems the Redskins are allowing for that possibility as it applies to Haynesworth.

I expect him to try the test again tomorrow morning, but I’ll try to get that confirmed today.
