All-Pro defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth and Pro Bowl fullback Mike Sellers both just told me that they won’t play Sunday at Oakland.
“I’m a no-go. You can print that,” said Haynesworth, who’ll miss a third game in four with a sprained left ankle that he reinjured during the fourth quarter last Sunday against New Orleans.
“I want to play, but I just can’t,” said Sellers, who was rushed to the hospital with bleeding in his left thigh that began in the locker room after the loss to the Saints. “I had 60 ccs of fluid drained from the thigh and it’s still really swollen. There’s still more fluid in there. I’ll be back, but not this week.”
With tight end Chris Cooley (ankle), left tackle Chris Samuels (neck) and running back Clinton Portis (concussion) on injured reserve and cornerback DeAngelo Hall questionable at best with back spasms and the sprained knee that sidelined him the past two games, the Redskins will be down to two Pro Bowl players: receiver Santana Moss and snapper Ethan Albright.
