London Fletcher did not practice Monday because of the sprained left ankle he aggravated against the Cowboys. But with a full week until the Redskins host the Giants on Monday Night Football, Coach Mike Shanahan said he's not concerned.
“I know it’s sore,” Shanahan said. “For him not to be out there it means it’s a quite sore.”
Fletcher had four tackles and a key interception in the third quarter of Thursday’s 38-31 victory at Cowboys Stadium. He left the game in the late in the fourth quarter and left the building wearing an immobilizing boot.
“I was really pleased with how he played, and for how long he played,” Shanahan said. “When he was in that boot earlier in the week, I could tell he couldn’t put it any weight on it. It was really pretty remarkable.”
Fletcher leads the Redskins in tackles with 88. He’s also played in 235 consecutive games, which is tied for the league lead among active players.
“I wouldn’t be concerned about London,” Shanahan cracked. “I used to worry about it, just like you, but I don’t worry about it. He always seems to be ready to go.”
