Coach Mike Shanahan said Friday that Fletcher "should be able to go" for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fletcher was hurt in last week's loss to Carolina. He has never missed a game in his 14-year NFL career and has played in 214 straight.

Shanahan said left tackle Trent Williams will miss a second straight game with a sprained right ankle. Fullback Mike Sellers is also out after being hospitalized overnight with a back injury.

Cornerback DeAngelo Hall has a hip injury, and safety Oshiomogho Atogwe has an ailing knee. Both were limited in practice Friday.

With Hall and Atogwe uncertain, the Redskins signed rookie cornerback Brandyn Thompson off the practice squad.

Backup quarterback Rex Grossman practiced and is expected to suit up after being hospitalized earlier this week with pneumonia.

Washington also released offensive lineman Jonathan Compas.
