London Fletcher has revealed that he does not think about his durability as he prepares for his 16th season in the NFL.
The Washington Redskins linebacker has not missed a regular season game since signing as an undrafted free agent with the St Louis Rams in 1998.
The 38-year-old told the Redskins' website: "You get up every day and go to work and don't think about it. That's pretty much how I go about my business, I get up every day and go to work and don't think about the durability part until someone brings it up.
"I feel good. I try to do a lot of different things to keep myself feeling good. The training staff does a great job of working with me, and the coaches do a great job of monitoring my reps and things like that. So, I don't think about it a whole lot.
"Really, the main thing I look at is not really wanting to let my teammates down and being honest with myself. [I] want to be out there on the football field with them. So, if I feel good enough to play, I play. I'm still playing and enjoying the game. I have more to give to this team, more to accomplish, and I'm ready to play."
Fletcher made 139 tackles, three sacks, a forced fumble and five interceptions last season.
