Tackles: 51
Sacks: 8.5
Forced fumbles: 3

Court records show Haynesworth entered his plea Thursday morning in the Nashville suburb of Franklin. He's required to perform 25 hours of community service, make a $5,000 charitable contribution and attend driving school.

The charge against the former Tennessee Titans player stems from a Dec. 13 incident in which prosecutors say Haynesworth tried to pass another driver, who crashed into a concrete median and was badly injured.

Circuit Court Judge Jeff Bivins told Haynesworth that he hopes the process has shown that no one is infallible.
