Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher, who has not missed a regular season game in 15 seasons, says that he does not worry about his durability.

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.
