Johnson doesn't practice Friday, remains questionable

Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson missed his second consecutive practice on Friday with an ankle injury and is officially listed as questionable against the Raiders this week.

On Thursday, Houston coach Gary Kubiak said the Pro Bowl wide receiver's status will be a "game-time decision."

Johnson was first injured during the Texans' 30-27 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sept. 19.

"To say that he's a 'no,' I don't see it that way," Kubiak said Thursday. "Obviously, he's (more sore) ... than he was last week at this time or would've taken in some of the practice. He did run some. It's not like he didn't do anything."

Johnson aggravated the injury during last Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Johnson said Thursday that he plans to play against the Raiders and that the ankle feels no worse than it did last week.

Tight end Owen Daniels (hamstring) and linebacker Darryl Sharpton (ankle) are also listed as questionable for the 2-1 Texans.

Safety Eugene Wilson (hamstring) is listed as doubtful, while linebacker Kevin Bentley (knee) is out.

For the 1-2 Raiders, S Hiram Eugene (hamstring), DT John Henderson (foot), WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (groin), CB Chris Johnson (neck, ankle), WR Louis Murphy (collarbone), DT Richard Seymour (hamstring), and CB Jeremy Ware (ankle) are all listed as questionable.

LB Ricky Brown (hamstring), G Robert Gallery (hamstring), LB Travis Goethel (back), CB Walter McFadden (hamstring), and WR Chaz Schilens (knee) are out.
