London Fletcher has never missed a game in his 15-year career.

Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher is questionable for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The veteran saw a neurologist on Thursday. He underwent numerous tests for a balance issue, but the doctors concluded that Fletcher does not have a concussion. Following practice on Friday, ESPN980 tweeted that head coach Mike Shanahan "felt London was pretty good in practice."

Fletcher is also recovering from a hamstring injury, which caused him to exit last week's game against the New York Giants. He has played in 231 consecutive games, which is the longest streak for an active player in the NFL.

The 37-year-old already has 59 tackles this season, which is eighth-most in the league. He also has one sack, an interception, and a forced fumble.

The Redskins defense has allowed 28.6 points per game (fifth-worst in the NFL), but they have been tough against the run. Teams have averaged just 85.3 rushing yards per game against Washington this season.
