UPDATE: Fletcher Practices, Listed as Questionable

London Fletcher's consecutive games streak might remain intact after all.

The Washington Redskins linebacker was back at practice Friday, one day after undergoing some six hours of tests for a "balance issue."

Fletcher said doctors still aren't sure what has caused his recent balance problems, but he said they ruled out a concussion.

Fletcher also has a right hamstring injury and was limping slightly as he came off the field.

Fletcher is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has played in all 231 games in his 15-year NFL career, the longest streak among active players.
