LANDOVER, MD - Albert Haynesworth has left the Redskins to be with his family in Nashville, Tennessee following the death of his brother, the team revealed Friday.

According to the Tennessean, 23-year-old Lance McCoy was traveling at a high rate of speed on his motorcycle when he struck a car and was killed around 9:00 p.m. Thursday.

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan did not comment on if Haynesworth would be available for Sunday's home game against the Packers.

"Obviously what [Haynesworth's] going through right now is paramount. We're giving him and his family all of our prayers and thoughts. I think that's the main concern right now," Shanahan said.
