Albert Haynesworth appears at Redskins practice; skips conditioning test, watches workouts

but strictly as an observer.

Haynesworth did not take a conditioning test Saturday that coach Mike Shanahan says the two-time All-Pro defensive lineman must pass before practicing. He failed the test Thursday and Friday. It is not clear why he didn't retake it Saturday.

While the team practiced in pads and helmets, Haynesworth stood to the side in his No. 92 jersey and a baseball cap. An assistant coach stood next to him, gesturing toward the players working out.

Haynesworth is the only Redskins player required to take the test because he missed the team's entire offseason conditioning program.
