London Fletcher Injury Update: Middle Linebacker Will Reportedly Start Against Buffalo

The Redskins have been bit by the injury bug as of late, but according to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network, they won't be without London Fletcher, arguably their most important defensive player, when they face the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

That streak is incredibly impressive, especially considering that Fletcher was not drafted coming out of College. I don't have to tell you how important his intensity and leadership, let alone his play on the field, are to the Redskins defense. That is a huge bump for the Redskins to have against the Bills.
