Redskins expect Haynesworth to be ready despite strained muscle

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins expect defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth to be fine despite a hip injury that forced him out of the loss to the Detroit Lions.

Coach Jim Zorn says Haynesworth has a strained glut muscle high in the hip area. The team says Haynesworth was having an MRI exam in Tennessee, where he was also taking care of a personal matter.

Asked about Haynesworth on Monday, Zorn said: "I think he's going to be fine."

Haynesworth was carted off in the first half of Sunday's 19-14 loss, but he returned and played much of the second half.

Haynesworth signed a seven-year contract, $100 million contract in the offseason.
