Washington ILB London Fletcher told the Washington Post that he doesn't yet know whether he'll play in 2013. Fletcher said it's the same thought process he's gone through over the past 4 or 5 seasons. Really, it should come as no surprise that a guy who will turn 38 in May can't answer that question in February. If Fletcher does stick around, he should continue to be a strong fantasy factor. If he doesn't, fellow ILB Perry Riley could be in for a stat boost.

Washington ILB London Fletcher is in danger of missing Thursday's clash with Dallas. The veteran sprained his left ankle in Sunday's win over Philly. Just like when he got hurt earlier this season, the situatino will require IDP owners to watch likely right up until Thursday. Fletcher hasn't missed a game. Ever. So he gets more benefit of the doubt than pretty much anyone else. Still, his owners need to make sure they have a backup plan ready.
London Fletcher is active despite the hamstring injury and "balance issues" he brought out of last week's game. It's risky to sit Fletcher whenever he's active (which is always). We still like a healthy Perry Riley for better numbers, though.
HC Mike Shanahan revealed today that ILB London Fletcher isn't just dealing with a hamstring injury. He also had hours of testing to determine whether he suffered a concussion in the loss to the Giants. Combine the 2 issues, and Fletcher isn't looking like a good bet to keep his consecutive-games streak going. Lorenzo Alexander would start in Fletcher's place. The vet's absence would only make Perry Riley a better tackle bet against Pittsburgh.

Washington ILB London Fletcher called himself "basically" day-to-day after having his injured hamstring checked out on Monday. That seems to indicate that he'll likely play on Sunday, given the fact that he has never missed an NFL game. We'll see if late-week practices and injury reports tell otherwise. Use perhaps a bit more caution with Fletcher, in case the team decides to give his hammy some snaps off. But sitting him is risky if he's in the lineup.
ILB London Fletcher will reportedly have an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of a hamstring injury. The veteran left near the end of Sunday's loss at the Giants but stayed on the sideline until the game was over. He was replaced by Lorenzo Alexander, who would likely start if Fletcher misses time. The 37-year-old has played in 231 consecutive games, dating back to his rookie year of 1998 with St. Louis.

Washington MLB London Fletcher is active today, as he has been for the past 219 games. He was listed as questionable with an ankle sprain but is good to go for fantasy owners.
Washington ILB London Fletcher is questionable for Sunday's meeting with the Jets because of an ankle sprain. This is the 3rd straight week in which the injury has put Fletcher on the week's final report. He was officially probable each of the previous 2 games, though. Keep an eye on Fletcher's status through the weekend. He's an obvious IDP starter if active.
Washington ILB London Fletcher is listed as questionable for Sunday with a hamstring pull. HC Mike Shanahan said he expects Fletcher to play, though. Similarly, S O.J. Atogwe hopes to play against the Bills despite being questionable with a knee injury that kept him out in Week 7.

According to Rich Campbell of The Washington Times, ILB London Fletcher blitzed on 10 of Arizona's 33 dropbacks in Week 2. "He is back to his explosive self, showing no signs of the groin/hamstring injury that sidelined him in the preseason," Campbell wrote, referring also to Fletcher's play in coverage and flying to the ball on rush attempts. Fletcher didn't register a sack on the day but did have 2.5 last year. He remains the strongest IDP bet in the Washington LB corps by a wide margin, no matter how close he gets to his 50th birthday.
ILB London Fletcher is already noticing positive effects from the addition of DL Barry Cofield. Fletcher told the Washington Post that fewer blockers are reaching him and that he's finding clearer tackling lanes on run plays. That assessment comes just a week and a half into team workouts, but Fletcher has been in the league 13 years and generally isn't 1 for hyperbole. He says he expects Cofield's arrival to lead to more tackles, which is always good for IDP value.
