The Washington Redskins listed linebacker London Fletcher as probable on their official injury report for Thursday night’s game at Minnesota.

Coach Mike Shanahan said Monday that Fletcher had his knee drained. But he described Fletcher then as fine. Fletcher was listed as practicing fully Tuesday and Wednesday, although players and coaches described those practices as light. Fletcher, a 16th-year veteran who has not missed a game in his NFL career, declined to discuss his physical status when speaking to reporters Tuesday.

The Redskins also listed defensive end Stephen Bowen (shoulder), safety Jose Gumbs (ankle), wide receiver Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) and tight end Logan Paulsen (knee) as probable. Rookie running back Chris Thompson was listed as questionable because of a shoulder injury.

What’s ahead:

● The Redskins make final preparations, then travel to Minnesota.
