Fletcher sat out last Thursday’s practice and didn’t play in Saturday night’s preseason game at Chicago.

Coach Mike Shanahan said then that Fletcher wasn’t feeling well but declined to elaborate. Shanahan said Monday that Fletcher now should be ready to go.

Fletcher confirmed that he participated in a full practice Monday. He, too, declined to specify why he’d been sidelined, saying it was “whatever Coach said.”

Fletcher said he would “have to see” about playing in Saturday’s preseason game at home against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fullback Darrel Young also practiced fully for the first time since straining his hamstring on July 31. Young’s goal has been to make his preseason debut Saturday against Indianapolis. Left guard Kory Lichtensteiger, who underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on July 30th, took part in positional drills for the first time.
