Washington Redskins inside linebacker London Fletcher is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens, but he did practice Friday and is expected to play in his 237th straight game.
Fletcher said he's having a hard time getting used to not practicing.
"It’s not fun, but it’s just kind of my reality right now," Fletcher said via The Washington Times. "It’s staying on top of it. Hopefully as you get further away from the initial injury, you can get some recovery. But what happens is, because I’m still playing on it, you don’t get full rest and recovery. But, hey, I got no time to rest right now."
The Redskins are in a tight battle for the NFC East with New York. If the Redskins win and the Giants lose to New Orleans, the Redskins will be in first place.
Fletcher said he studies film to make up for missing practice on the field.
"You’d like to be out there to get your normal reps, just get familiar with the offense that you’re facing," he said. "What happens is your body gets muscle memory and you start to familiarize yourself with plays, so you would like, but you’ve just got to do as much film study as possible and get whatever you can as far as from a physical standpoint."
