Haynesworth's status up in the air for Sunday

Albert Haynesworth returned to practice on Thursday but his status for the Washington Redskins on Sunday night is unknown.

Haynesworth left the team for nearly a week following the death of his brother last week in Tennessee.

“Obviously, he went through a tough six days,” Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said, according to the Washington Post. “I had a good conversation with him. He practiced (Thursday), and he'll be a game-time decision, from our standpoint, where he's at, both mentally and physically. We'll make a decision right before the game.”

The practice wasn’t a full session. It was raining and the team opted to practice inside a hangar at Dulles International Airport. Haynesworth has not spoken to reporters. The Redskins face the Indianapolis Colts Sunday night.
