This, according to Washington Post beat writer Jason Reid's Twitter account .

Which means Haynesworth has no structural damage to his knee. Which means he still will have to pass that dadgummed conditioning test. Which means that coach Mike Shanahan is still winning. Which means, at this point, Haynesworth is still screwed. Except for all that guaranteed money he gets to keep.

Albert Haynesworth's MRI comes back clean

okay lets say, albert finally passes the test, next step, he will be able to practice with the rest of the team. afterward coach shanny
will closely monitor albert's efforts on the field and with just one miss read/play, the media will go "oops, see he is still out of shape and has plenty of catching up to do. hence, albert and until he makes major regular season contributions, will be under the coach's additional watchful eye and subject to media ridicual, to a piont where as everyone will be requesting him to be benched/traded. warren sapp said it best "for $32 million, i'd run back punts, flip dogs.....whatever" and the big picture here is mr.haynesworth (like mr.favre) feels as though thier respected teams owes them something and applies every opportunity to hold redskins/vikings hostage, respectively.

pros, albert did lose some LBS. the cons, he is squaring off against a coach who demands accountability from everyone on his team
and you'll either roll with it or it will roll without you.............haynesworth/farve, vacation and tee times are over, go to your respected
teams and embrace the NLF. though mr.favre is an tadbit more advanced, ankle injury, i'd like to see him address his teammates and the media with a congent (play/retire) decision.

He was never hurt.  Thing is he can get paid to run on a treadmill his entire life.  Washington is paying him to play Def Line- thus thats where they need to be practicing him!  Shanahan is not winning this- man already is paid and every day he remains on the team he is paid!  Would you mind being paid 20 million  to run on a treadmill for 4 months?  Doubt it.  Also its a new defense.  Less practice for Fat Al- less productive he can be in the system. Also if they want him to play nose guard running will make him lose weight- at this point they should want him to bulk up.

As a matter of fact, the Lions just made Suh do this. And he passed the FIRST time he took it. And being that I have played Division I college football, the test really isn't that hard. We did it all the time with no problems. He is just being a lazy fuck at this point. Being in shape is essential to playing football, at any level. Especially in the NFL. There is no excuse for him being a baby about this situation. Pass the test and get on the practice field. Its 2 gassers dude.....2 gassers.

 This is not about Albert being in football shape this is about Shanahan showing that he is in charge.Bowie, I couldn't have said it better myself. Without discipline, without structure, without a hard-nosed approach to coaching you get a 4-12 season. 

So he didn't show up for conditioning, he is significantly lighter than last year and had obviously worked hard in the off-season to lose the weight. I can lose weight without going on a conditioning program so your argument holds no merit. 

If the Redskins do cut him, watch the other teams line up to sign him and see if he isn't in good enough shape to start practicing right away.They gave him a chance to test his market value with other teams before the mini camps and OTAs began and no one and I mean NO ONE was interested in an overpaid malcontent. He had his chance and it didn't work out for him. So, he decided to take a $21 million roster bonus and show up to the mandatory training camp (where the Redskins could legally get back some of the money if he didn't show up). He made the comittment to the team by taking the roster bonus, now it is time for him to live up to his end of the bargain.

Think of it like this, if you pay a contractor a ton of money to remodel your house from top to bottom and all he does is slap a coat of paint on the exterior, wouldn't you be slightly pissed?

Quit being sheep.You tell me who is being a sheep. Let me answer that one for you... It is all those people taking Fat Albert's side. I hope the Redskins cut him and your team picks him up. Then when this season is over and he wants to renegotiate his already outrageous contract, see what happens after he gets his money. Same thing that happened last year with the Redskins. He will take every other play off while he sucks on oxygen or will roll around on the ground with a multitude of different "injuries". Besides, he didn't make much of an impact on the Redskins defense last year because he wasn't on the field long enough.

So, get off your high horse and stop drinking the Kool-aid... sheep!

Interestingly, Haynesworth ran the test in less than 70 seconds on his first try.  He then went to the bathroom, and took ten minutes to return (he was supposed to do the second test within 3.5 minutes of the first).  So they made him run the test again, and it took him 71 seconds, so they failed him.  (Golic's actual time was a few seconds slower than the passing score, due to an error by the timekeeper...these guys try to time the test as close to the limit as possible, so as not to overexert themselves.)  Considering that Haynesworth is 65 pounds heavier than Mike Golic, (and to all of those calling him "fat", skinny DT's typically don't have jobs, as they are expected to clog the D-Line to eliminate running lanes and occupy blockers on passing downs), the comparisons are not as valid as you might think.

In any event, Haynesworth should have showed up for the OTAs and minicamps, so he did bring this on himself.  He is firmly in Shanny's doghouse, and I'm curious to see how it will all play out.

Albert Haynesworth MRI = Cart Nap

This guy just wanted another cart nap like he got after that game where he was so out of shape he had to be carted off the field only to come back in on the sidellines later.  Never in my life have I ever seen anyone so shameless that they'll embarrass themselves to the degree like this guy did for the sake of being fat, lazy, and filthy rich.  Even after 16 years out of the NFL, Mike Golic passes that test without a hitch.  Anyone in any kind of athletic shape can pass that test.  I don't see how anyone can defend this guy at all:  he's obviously simply content with being the world's most expensive coach potato.
