Defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth participated fully in practice for the first time Monday at Redskins Park. Haynesworth, after finally passing his conditioning test on his fourth attempt Saturday, was limited in his first practice during Fan Appreciation Day in Ashburn.

"I haven't had a chance to look at [tape of] practice on the defensive side, but what I saw looked pretty good."

Shanny was making positive comments about AH's learning curve prior to passing the conditioning test. The staff is just learning first hand where the talent is and how to use it best.

Shame that AH was such a bonehead about the situation, they could have been polishing up special packages by now instead of his grubbing around with the basics.
