David Elfin of the Washington Times was the first to report that Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth (ankle) will not play against the Raiders on Sunday. Fullback Mike Sellers will also miss the game with a thigh injury. It would be the third game Haynesworth's missed in the past four, so at least the Redskins are used to playing without their star defender.
Jason Reid of The Washington Post stopped short of ruling Haynesworth out for the game. He said that Jim Zorn was reluctant to list Haynesworth as "doubtful" for the game until he absolutely had to. Haynesworth was making his way around the team's practice facility wearing a protective boot Thursday.
