Last month, Fletcher overcame balance and hamstring issues to keep his consecutive games streak alive, which now stands at 234 games. Now Fletcher, 37, is dealing with a sprained left ankle that has kept him out of practice the past two days.
"The fact that it's a short week doesn't help," Fletcher said Tuesday, via CSNWashington.com. "That's my main concern; I have three less days to heal. Only thing I can do is get as much treatment as possible. Let the training staff do their thing and see how I feel in pregame. That will be pretty much the deal."
Fletcher's 234-game playing streak is tied with Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Ronde Barber for the longest active streak in football.
