Add London Fletcher to the Washington Redskins’ list of the walking wounded, as the middle linebacker and defensive leader missed Wednesday’s practice with more than just right hamstring soreness.

Coach Mike Shanahan said Fletcher has been dealing with a “little problem with his balance” and is seeing an independent neurologist and team doctor Anthony Casolaro.


“I’m hoping it’s nothing very serious, but that’s why he’s talking to Dr. Casolaro and a neurologist to find out why he’s having a little problem with his balance,” Shanahan said. “Let’s get a review from a doctor, see what they have to say. We got two great guys in there today looking at him. I’ll give you more to know tomorrow.”

Pierre Garcon (right foot) was also out; he visited Dr. James B. Anderson in Charlotte, N.C., to get another look at an MRI.

“He’s looked at a few things on him already, but he’ll get a chance to talk to him in person,” Shanahan said.

Safety Brandon Meriweather (left knee) and cornerback David Jones (Achilles) were limited in practice.

Punter Sav Rocca (knee), Cedric Griffin (hamstring), Darrel Young (hamstring), and Josh Wilson had full participation.

Shanahan took the chance Wednesday to update a couple of injuries that occurred during Sunday’s loss to the New York Giants. Safety DeJon Gomes had the wind knocked out of him and returned to the game. Safety Reed Doughty suffered a bruised knee and also returned.

Tight end Fred Davis had his torn left Achilles tendon repaired Wednesday afternoon at 12:45 by Anderson, Shanahan said.
