Albert Haynesworth Season Comes to Abrupt End, Suspended Without Pay


ASHBURN, Va. — The Washington Redskins have suspended defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth without pay for the last four games of the regular season.

The team says in a press release Tuesday that Haynesworth was punished for "conduct detrimental to the club" and that he was told of the suspension by general manager Bruce Allen.

Coach Mike Shanahan says in a statement that Haynesworth "repeatedly refused to cooperate with our coaching staff in a variety of ways over an extended period of time."

Shanahan says Haynesworth "consistently indicated" to defensive coaches that he wouldn?t play in certain defensive packages and refused to follow coaches' instructions in practice and during games.
