London Fletcher Says He'll Play in 2013

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

After two off-season injuries on his ankle and elbow, Fletcher will lace them up another year. The decision before free agency helps the Redskins make decisions with Lorenzo Alexander.

Long-time Redskins beat writer and current CBS DC columnist, David Elfin, reported:

London Fletcher is having surgery this morning to repair the left ankle that bothered him for much of the second half of the 2012 Redskins season. Later this month, the Pro Bowl inside linebacker will go under the knife again for some cleanup work on an elbow....Fletcher told me the other day while making me promise to hold the news until this morning, "Surgery is the first step towards prepping for next season."

London Fletcher will turn 38 this May. I fully endorse reading Elfin's article in its' entirety because it covers Fletcher's difficult life as a teenager dealing with family tragedies and his rise in the NFL.

Fletcher is due to make $5.5 million in 2013.
