Teammates expect Albert Haynesworth to play

With defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth (ankle) limited in practice this week, his status is unclear for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans at FedEx Field.

Officially, the team will determined before game time whether to list Haynesworth as active or inactive, and there's the question of how much he would be able to play if he is active. It's all a matter of whether the ankle, which was sore throughout the week, has responded well to treatment.

For what it's worth, several of Haynesworth's teammates said they expect him to play. Veteran leaders on defense said they expect their group to face a major challenge against the high-powered Texans offense, featuring Pro Bowl quarterback Matt Schaub, all-pro wide receiver Andre Johnson and second-year back Arian Foster, who rushed for 231 yards and three touchdowns in Week 1.

Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has drawn up another aggressive plan for this game, and players are confident in their approach. But Haynesworth fared well against the Texans, and Schaub in particular, when he played for the Tennessee Titans. And for the Redskins, any edge always helps.

As one of our coaches (I think it was Don Breaux) said in an old NFL Films video, "There's a lot of great things we could be doing today, and the best one is kickin' their ass!"

Check your "sources", Mr. Mayor, because #92 will be inactive against the Texans. Turns out DeAngelo and Mr. Alexander don't make the coaching/inactive decisions, after all.
