Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Fletcher practiced on Friday and hopes to play. “I was encouraged by today,” Fletcher said via The Washington Post. “It felt good to get out there and run around. It’s still another 48 hours until game day, so hopefully I keep improving. My body has a great way of healing.” Fletcher has never missed a game in his 15-year NFL career.  He strained his hamstring last Sunday against the New York Giants and revealed to the Redskins that he has balance issues. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Fletcher saw a neurologist on Thursday and went through six hours of testing.  The doctors ruled out a possible concussion.   “It wasn’t a concussion. Not sure what it was,” Shanahan said. “We’re going to keep on testing him. Sometimes people think it’s the inner ear when they talk about balance issues. . . . Good thing about it is he’s feeling a lot better.” Fletcher is tied with Ronde Barber for the NFL's longest consecutive streak at 231 consecutive games played.   “I don’t really think about it a lot until people talk about it,” Fletcher said. “I always take it as the mind-set of if I’m ready to play a game, I’m ready to play a game. That’s just really how it’s been. I love being out there with my teammates, love being out there on the field playing football. That’s really just how I approach it.” Fletcher leads the Redskins with 89 tackles and three forced fumbles this season.
