So how do you prepare for Haynesworth?
By Calvin Watkins
Coach Wade Phillips received a question about Albert Haynesworth on Friday.
The Redskins defensive tackle played at end of the preseason and received reps on the scout team Friday, though Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said first-and-second teamers get scout team reps at times.
Shanahan said Haynesworth, the subject of trade rumors, will be in Landover, Md. for Sunday's game. Sources tell ESPN.com's Ed Werder that he is expected to play and could start.
Starting guard Leonard Davis and Montrae Holland also expect him to play.
Tackle Alex Barron said Haynesworth can beat you with power and finesse.
Is he playing nose tackle in the Redskins new 3-4 scheme, or is he playing at end on passing downs?
"It's like any other player," Phillips said. "You know where the strong safety is, he may move around. You know where different players are. You know where London Fletcher is. You have to make adjustments. They have a lot of good players."
One would believe Haynesworth is will see significant snaps Sunday.
The Redskins depth chart released to the media had Haynesworth backing up Ma'ake Kemoeatu at nose tackle.
