ASHBURN, VA. (AP) - Albert Haynesworth’s sore knee has kept him from taking the Washington Redskins conditioning test for the third straight day.

The Haynesworth soap opera entered its second week Thursday when the two-time All-Pro defensive lineman again didn’t attempt the test he needs to pass in order to practice with the team.

Haynesworth failed the test each of the first two days of training camp, but since then, his left knee has hampered his efforts to try again. He started the test Monday but stopped when the knee acted up.

Haynesworth continues to learn the Redskins defense as a spectator, watching the drills usually with a play sheet in his hand. He also attends team meetings and has been hitting the blocking sled after practice.
