Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb, defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth and running back Clinton Portis are questionable for Sunday's home game against the Houston Texans, the team announced Friday.

McNabb and Portis fully participated in practice this week, according to The Washington Post.

McNabb is still healing from a left ankle that he sprained during an Aug. 21 preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, but he is expected to play against the Texans. McNabb started the Redskins' season-opening 13-7 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, hitting on 15 of 32 passes for 171 yards.

Haynesworth hurt his ankle during Wednesday's practice and didn't participate in team drills Thursday. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Haynesworth was able to practice Friday, according to The Post, and the team listed the lineman as being limited.

Haynesworth played as a backup in Washington's opener after months of disagreements with Shanahan over offseason workouts, practices and preseason playing time.

Portis, who made inflammatory comments about female reporters Tuesday, rushed 16 times for 63 yards against the Cowboys. He has an injured wrist.

Redskins safety Kareem Moore was listed as doubtful with a knee injury, but Shanahan told The Post the three-year NFL veteran wouldn't play Sunday.

The Texans listed cornerback Antwuan Molden and defensive tackle Amobi Okoye as questionable with ankle injuries.
