ASHBURN, VA. (AP) - Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is uncertain whether Albert Haynesworth will be with the team for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

Haynesworth left the team after learning that his half brother had been killed in a motorcycle crash Thursday night in Nashville.

Shanahan said Friday that it’s unfair to ask a player about playing a game after such a tragedy.

Shanahan says Haynesworth’s backup at nose tackle, Anthony Bryant, is ready to return after missing the last two games with a concussion.

The coach says left tackle Trent Williams is also ready to go after being sidelined for two games with toe and knee injuries.
