Haynesworth back at practice

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth returned to practice Tuesday after missing two days for treatment on his left knee.

Haynesworth received an injection to insert fluid in the knee, a procedure he said has become routine for him in recent years to help fight the wear and tear of training camp. Still, his absence was buzz-worthy news around the Redskins, who this year signed the two-time All-Pro defensive tackle to a contract that includes an NFL-record $41 million in guaranteed money.

Coach Jim Zorn said the knee issue wasn't serious and should not affect Haynesworth's ability to play a full 16-game schedule.

"Haynesworth practiced and did great," Zorn said. "He's just fine, perfect -- no worries."
