Albert Haynesworth was on hand for this morning’s walk-through and is expected to play in tomorrow’s home finale against the Dallas Cowboys.
So perhaps the tensions have eased between the All-Pro defensive tackle and the coaching staff.
The conflict began with Haynesworth’s postgame criticism of the Redskins’ lack of direction after Monday’s 45-12 smackdown by the New York Giants, continued with secondary coach Jerry Gray firing back on Wednesday and escalated when he reported late to Friday’s team meeting and was sent home by coach Jim Zorn.
The Redskins don’t make coaches or players available to the media the day before a game.
However, one veteran player returned a message and said, “Everybody’s [ticked] off at Albert. He’s such a [jerk]. Guys didn’t want to talk to him today, especially on the D-line.”
