ASHBURN, Va. — Some notes from Tuesday morning’s practice at the Washington Redskins’ camp:

» Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, who missed practice Monday after getting an injection in his knee, is back in full pads Tuesday morning and taking part in drills. Not sure if he will take part in all drills today, but we’ll keep an eye on it.

» A lot of people look at the right side of the Redskins’ O-line as a potential problem spot. With Randy Thomas sitting out practice again — he has suffered through numerous serious injuries including a career-threatening neck injury last season — Chad Rinehart, who could not get on the field as a rookie, is at right guard. Stephon Heyer is working at first-team right tackle.

» Rookie linebacker/end Brian Orakpo just planted Pro Bowl tackle Chris Samuels. Talking to people at camp here, I’m told that hasn’t been uncommon, with the speedy but raw rookie having success rushing from the weak side when he flops with linebacker Rocky McIntosh.

» Rough stretch for the Skins’ first-team offense in 11-on-11 drills. Bunch of sacks, a few picks. Not pretty. Even against the second-team defense, it was a struggle.
