"I don't know what capacity you'll see Albert in," Cooley said. "Albert's played a lot of the practice team this week. When we're running our offense, he's been on the other side."
Haynesworth has also practiced with the team's nickel packages, according to Cooley.
On Tuesday, two people with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press that the Redskins were talking to the Tennessee Titans about trading Haynesworth, who has been a nonstop headache for Shanahan in the coach's first eight months in Washington. Haynesworth spent seven seasons with the Titans before signing a seven-year, $100 million contract with the Redskins as a free agent last year. The people spoke to The AP on condition of anonymity because the talks were confidential.
Asked about the trade talk, Shanahan said: "We've heard all these rumors and speculations. ... Albert had a great practice today, and he'll be ready to go this weekend, and I think we'll leave it at that."
