Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher is active and starting against the Buffalo Bills.
Fletcher is playing in his 215th consecutive NFL game - and making his 170th straight start - despite being hampered by a hamstring injury sustained in last week's loss to Carolina. Fletcher came in as questionable after not practicing Wednesday, and being limited Thursday and Friday.
Washington is without starting offensive lineman Trent Williams for the second straight game because of an ankle injury. Receiver Santana Moss (hand), cornerback Phillip Buchanon (neck/knee), and fullback Mike Sellers (back) are also out.
Running back Ryan Torain starts in place of Tim Hightower, who was placed on injured reserve earlier in the week because of a torn knee ligament.
Buffalo is missing defensive lineman Kyle Williams (foot) for the second straight game.

If you need a Redskins pick-me-up on this dreary Monday, you can look forward to Tuesday, when DeAngelo Hall’s line of “Hail Yeah I Hate Dallas” silicone wristbands will go on sale at his Web site, DeAngeloHall.com. The cost is $3.99 per, and the release we received said “partial proceeds of sales” will benefit the D.C. Central Kitchen.

Earlier this month, I pointed out that the Redskins were 3-1 for the eighth time in 16 years. That was weird.
Well, the winning record is gone. Three straight losses have dropped the Redskins’ record to 3-4. Of the seven aforementioned 3-1 starts, only one of them was followed by three straight losses and a 3-4 record. That would be the second Spurrier campaign, in which the...
The Washington Redskins offense, with a full roster in Week One of the regular season wasn’t considered exactly formidable, but after the past few weeks, the Redskins roster has taken a series of body blows, losing players at an alarming rate. WR Santana Moss has been lost for multiple weeks, RB Tim Hightower is lost for the rest of the season and TE Chris Cooley is...

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has been in the NFL for a lot of years. He ran the Denver Broncos' offense from 1984 through 1987, served as the Los Angeles Raiders' head coach for an ill-advised season-and-a-half before heading back to Denver in 1991. From 1992 through 1994, he helped put together the offense that made Steve Young a repeat MVP candidate and...
The Bills' once porous defense had nine sacks and two interceptions to batter the already
injury-riddled Washington Redskins 23-0 on Sunday.
“I’m still getting better, I’m a work in progress,” LeSean McCoy said following last Sunday’s 100-yard day against the Washington Redskins. It was scary to think that the NFL’s 5th leading rusher, 2nd leading scorer, and the man with the most converted first downs could get any better.
On Sunday night, on a national stage, [...]
1-Simply put: this was one of the most embarrassing losses for this franchise in years. The Bills are a decent team, but not a great team, and they manhandled the skins in just about every phase of the game. I realize that the skins were missing some important pieces due to injury(and others weren’t at 100%), but where’s the heart on this team? Where’s the pride? Where’s...
