Redskins LB Fletcher extends games streak to 235

Thursday - 11/22/2012, 6:02pm  ET

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Washington linebacker London Fletcher has extended his consecutive games streak to 235.

The 15-year veteran who has never missed a game made his 190th straight start Thursday against Dallas. Fletcher sprained his right ankle last weekend against Philadelphia and had just five days to try to recover.

The 37-year-old started the day tied with Tampa Bay's Ronde Barber for the longest current games played streak in the NFL.

Dallas running back DeMarco Murray missed his sixth straight game with a sprained right foot.

Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith was active but didn't start. He sprained an ankle Sunday against Cleveland.

Dallas nose tackle Jay Ratliff was inactive because of a groin injury. He missed the first four games of the season with a high ankle sprain.
