London Fletcher to Have Surgery

Thirty-seven-year-old London Fletcher told CBS/DC reporter David Elfin that he is going to undergo surgery on his bothersome left ankle Wednesday morning. Fletcher said he’s making preparations to play in 2013.

Fletcher also plans to have elbow surgery later this month in an effort to make sure he’s ready for his 16th NFL season.

“Surgery is the first step towards prepping for next season” – London Fletcher

If Fletcher does return, it would be a huge relief for the Redskins, who aren’t in a position to replace the Pro Bowler due to salary-cap restrictions and a lack of high picks in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Fletcher led the Redskins with 139 tackles in 2012 and added five interceptions and three sacks.
