The Washington Redskins listed linebacker London Fletcher as questionable for their Thanksgiving game in Dallas.

Fletcher has played in 234 straight games but suffered a sprained left ankle during last Sunday’s victory over the Philadelphia Eagles at FedEx Field.

Fletcher did not practice Tuesday and said afterward he would receive treatment on his ankle through early Thursday before testing it during pregame warmups to see if he is able to play.

Neither he nor Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan was available to comment Wednesday. The team was scheduled to travel to Dallas in the afternoon.

“It matters to London, Shanahan said Tuesday of Fletcher’s consecutive games streak. “It matters to us not necessarily the streak, but playing. And there is a reason why he has played all those games, because he plays when he is hurt. And hopefully he will be able to play. But I can’t tell you for sure.”

The Redskins also listed wide receiver Pierre Garcon as questionable. He played against the Eagles after missing the previous four games with a torn ligament near the second toe in his right foot.

Cornerback Josh Wilson (shoulder), left tackle Trent Williams (ankle) and tight end Logan Paulsen (hip) were listed as probable.
