04:29 PM ET 10.24 | Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher has been having balance problems and will be meeting with a neurologist, according to head coach Mike Shanahan on Wednesday afternoon. As of this time, the team has not made any mention of a possible concussion, but did hold Fletcher out of practice on Wednesday. In addition to the potential head issues, Fletcher injured his hamstring during Week 7's meeting with the New York Giants. He recorded six tackles against New York (four solo) and was replaced by six-year veteran Lorenzo Alexander. Fletcher was already listed as questionable for Sunday's Week 8 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers due to the hamstring tear, but with the added dynamic of a head injury, his status for Sunday becomes further complicated.
