Haynesworth finally passes conditioning test

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- After he passed the Washington Redskins conditioning test, Albert Haynesworth was in no shape to practice.

Haynesworth finally conquered the 300-yard shuttle runs Saturday and was allowed to take part in his first practice of training camp. But he had a huge wrap put on his left knee midway through the session and became a spectator again during the offense-vs.-defense team drills.

Haynesworth passed the test on the 10th day of camp, ending a daily soap opera that had overshadowed everything else at Redskins Park.

The Redskins are off Sunday, and coaches say they expect Haynesworth to be able to go through a regular practice Monday. He will start off working with the second-team unit at nose tackle.
