WASHINGTON -- An MRI exam on Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth's ailing knee reportedly showed no structural damage.

The Washington Post, which cites sources familiar with the situation, reports that the team is hopeful Haynesworth will be at full strength soon.

Haynesworth has yet to participate in training camp thus far because of the injury. He's been unable to pass the team's conditioning test, which requires him to complete a series of running drills in an allotted amount of time. He failed the test on Thursday and Friday of last week, then skipped it on Saturday and Sunday because of knee soreness.

On Monday, Haynesworth began the drill but was unable to finish because of the knee issue and has sat out completely since.

Haynesworth, who logged four sacks in 12 games in his first year in Washington last season, must pass the conditioning test because he did not attend the majority of the team's voluntary offseason programs and skipped the mandatory minicamp in June, due to an objection to his role in the team's new defensive scheme.
