Description: Ironman London Fletcher is expected to retire after the season.
Insight: The Redskins linebacker says he's "99 percent certain" that this will be his final season. Incredibly, the 16-year veteran has never missed a game. Sunday's game against Dallas will be his 255th consecutive game. So far, the 38-year-old has logged 98 tackles this season to go along with two sacks and a forced fumble.

Description: Redskins linebacker London Fletcher is expected to suit up Sunday against Pittsburgh. Fletcher had been listed as questionable because of balance issues.

Description: Redskins LB London Fletcher fully intends to play in 2011. SOURCE: WASHINGTON POST
Insight: Fletcher is due $4.9 million on the last year of a five-year contract in 2011, which will be his 14th season. After averaging 8.5 tackles this season, there's no reason he can't rip off one more triple-digit tackle season. He also threw in two sacks, an interception and three forced fumbles in 2010.

Description: The Washington Post reports new Redskins' defensive coordinator Jim Haslett thinks Fletcher would make a smooth transition if the team switches to a 3-4 defense.
Insight: Fletcher is a Pro-Bowl caliber performer, and should continue to be a prolific tackler no matter how the Redskins choose to line up defensively. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: London Fletcher is active and will start for Washington today. He's a risky fantasy play with his injured foot but is a top tackler. (SportsBuff.com)
Insight:
 
11/30/2008 10:10:00 AM
Description: NFL Network's Bob Papa reports that London Fletcher moved around well in a brief pregame warm-up and should be expected to start. A wet field is worrisome for a player who brings in a foot injury, though. He's a risky IDP option but should face plenty of runs from the Giants. (SportsBuff.com)
Insight:
 
11/30/2008 8:38:00 AM
Description: London Fletcher looks like a pure game-time decision, as speculation has him both likely to start and unlikely to play. Either way, his injured foot figures to severely limit Washington's middle man, rendering him a weaker IDP option. (SportsBuff.com)
