Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth was sent home from practice on Friday for “disciplinary reasons”.
Coach Jim Zorn did not specify why he ordered Haynesworth to leav the training session but several team mates said it was because he arrived late.
“He wasn’t belligerent or nasty to me, and I was not nasty to him. It was just something that needed to be done,” Zorn told the NFL team’s website (www.redskins.com).
“So I handled things the way I felt I should, and he’ll be back tomorrow (Saturday) and he’ll be ready to go and play in the game (on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys).” Zorn told reporters that while Haynesworth would play against the Cowboys he may not start the game.
