Albert Haynesworth returned to work as $100 million backup Monday, working at second-string nose tackle in his first full practice at this year's Washington Redskins training camp.
Haynesworth put on his No. 92 jersey and blended with his teammates, usually lining up between defensive ends Phillip Daniels and Darrion Scott as he ramps up his education in the team's new 3-4 defense. Coach Mike Shanahan lived up to his word that Haynesworth would not be plugged in immediately with the starters.
''Albert obviously has come in late,'' coach Mike Shanahan said, ''and he's going to have to compete to win a position.''
