ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher and left tackle Trent Williams remain hobbled ahead of Monday night's game against the New York Giants.

Both practiced Friday for the first time this week, although on a limited basis. Coach Mike Shanahan said both have "significant injuries" and that Fletcher is "quite sore."

Fletcher and Williams played hurt — and got hurt again — in last week's Thanksgiving win over the Dallas Cowboys. Fletcher reinjured his sprained left ankle, and Williams started with ankle and shoulder injuries before picking up a thigh bruise when he was kneed in the left leg by a teammate.

Fletcher has played in 235 consecutive games, tied for the longest streak among active NFL players. Citing that track record, Shanahan said: "Chances are he will be ready."
