Haynesworth less likely for Dallas

Don’t expect Albert Haynesworth to play Sunday at Dallas.

The All-Pro defensive tackle isn’t on the field again this morning. He hasn’t practiced all week because of the left ankle he sprained last Sunday against Denver.

As of Thursday afternoon, Haynesworth’s ankle was still in a boot.

Coach Jim Zorn said on Thursday that Haynesworth would be a game-time decision, but if the man can’t even work on the side while his teammates practice, it’s hard to see him lining up on FieldTurf against the Cowboys two days later.

Kedric Golston, the starter in 2006 and 2008, would start if Haynesworth can’t play. Anthony Montgomery, the starter in 2007, could then be active for the first time all season.
