The Redskins have been installed as 9.5-point underdogs Sunday against 11-0 New Orleans.

The Saints and other issues were brought up moments ago during Jim Zorn’s weekly appearance on ESPN 980.


* Zorn said he heard from the league and Eagles defender Jaqua Parker will not be fined for his end-of-game hit on Redskins QB Jason Campbell. Parker spiked Campbell into the turf, and Campbell said he blacked out.

“It was questionable,” he said. “They saw it from all angles and they were emphatic it was a clean play. It’s a violent game.”

* Zorn said DT Albert Haynesworth (ankle) will practice this week and Haynesworth said on Monday he expects to play.

* CB DeAngelo Hall (knee) will be questionable throughout the week.

* Zorn on facing the undefeated Saints: “That makes it special for us. Our guys will be ready to show what we can do. We’re going to play a really hot football team. The fans ought to love this football game. We’ll be as ready as we’ve been.”

* More on the Saints: “I’m kind of fired up playing an 11-0 team this week and trying to do what we can to turn our season around. I would love to win out.”

* On the offensive system: “We have a width and a depth to our offense. Right now we’re working on a little bit of depth and the width comes when the guys understand what we’re all doing and how it all fits together. We’re still growing.”
