Albert Haynesworth Takes Cleanliness Seriously

Posted by Matt Terl on October 21, 2009 – 3:45 pm

So there were quite a few guys missing from an unseasonably warm practice today: Chris Cooley, gone for family reasons. Cornelius Griffin, just getting “a little more rest,” according to head coach Jim Zorn. “He’s gonna be fine.”

Clinton Portis “did not practice,” Zorn said. “He’s got a sprained ankle.” Albert Haynesworth was out with a sprained ankle as well — Zorn said he expects both of them to play Monday — but Haynesworth found a new way to keep himself occupied after practice, because of the reason that Kareem Moore and Chris Horton were missing.

“Kareem and Chris Horton,” Zorn said, “they had a fever this morning. So instead of trying to get them through and have them be around the other players, we sent them home.” Zorn had also advised all the players to be especially careful about using hand sanitizer, especially in light of what happened in Cleveland.

So Haynesworth posted himself at the door after practice with a squeeze bottle of hand sanitizer, and proceeded to sanitize every staff member, coach, player, or media member who walked in, even chasing down people who tried to use other doors.

“Since I’m not at practice,” Haynesworth shrugged, “I’m the official building sanitizer.” I certainly didn’t see anyone willing to turn him down.
