Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher sat out of Tuesday's practice with a sprained ankle as the Redskins prepare to play the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday, Nov. 22. Fletcher injured his ankle in the Redskins' win over the Philadelphia Eagles, but was able to return to the game.
Fletcher said he didn't know whether he'd be able to play against the Cowboys or not and both he and coach Mike Shanahan indicated that they wouldn't test the ankle until pregame warmups on Thursday. Fletcher has played in 234 straight games, the longest active streak in the NFL.
Four Redskins were limited at practice on Tuesday, including wide receiver Pierre Garcon. Garcon made his return to the lineup against the Eagles after missing over a month with a foot injury, but was only able to catch three passes for five yards. Also limited on Tuesday were tackle Trent Williams (ankle/shoulder), tight end Logan Paulsen (hip), and cornberback Josh Wilson (shoulder). All three played against the Eagles.
