Haynesworth could see a considerable workload this week, but he is still far from assured of a starting spot in Week 1, according to a member of the Redskins' staff. There is even a possibility that Haynesworth could be deactivated for the Redskins' Week 1 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys, the source surmised, as coach Mike Shanahan continues to sort through what has been a troubling offseason with the high-priced defensive lineman.

Also, running back Willie Parker will start for the Redskins on Thursday in what might be an audition for other teams. Parker faces stark odds to make the Redskins, according to team sources, but following a poor preseason will try to get some decent film out of Thursday's game.
