Redskins LB London Fletcher's streak in danger again because of sprained ankle, short week

London Fletcher's consecutive games streak is in danger once again.

The Washington Redskins linebacker did not practice Tuesday due to a sprained right ankle and has little time to recover before Thursday's Thanksgiving game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fletcher was hurt in Sunday's 31-6 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. He has never missed a game in his 15-year NFL career and has appeared in 234 in a row, tying him with Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back Ronde Barber for the longest active streak.

Fletcher says he won't be able to give the ankle a good test until the pregame warmup.

His availability was also in doubt prior to last month's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers because of head and hamstring injuries, but he started and played all 61 defensive snaps.
