Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth lost his step-brother to a motorcycle accident Thursday night, the Redskins reported today. He has returned to Nashville to be with his family.
His status for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers is not certain. “I would never ask somebody if they’re going to play when a tragedy like that just happened,” says Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan. “We’ll just let the course of time take care of itself and we’ll find out what’s going on.”
We at Redskins Hog Heaven express our condolences to Haynesworth and his family.
