ASHBURN, Va. – Albert Haynesworth arrived at work Saturday morning with a slightly swollen knee, forcing him to scrap his latest chance to pass the Washington Redskins’ conditioning test and keeping him exiled from practice for yet another day.

Haynesworth, a two-time All-Pro defensive tackle, arrived early and told the team he had irritation in one knee. Doctors recommended he not take the test and instead ride a stationary bike and get treatment.

“Here’s a setback already,” Coach Mike Shanahan said.

Shanahan is requiring Haynesworth to pass the test, which consists of two timed 300-yard shuttle runs, before taking part in practice. Haynesworth is the only player required to do so because he skipped the team’s offseason conditioning program.

Haynesworth failed the test Thursday and Friday.
