London Fletcher Named NFC Defensive Player Of The Month For December
ASHBURN – London Fletcher was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month on Thursday after the Washington Redskins linebacker finished December with 51 tackles, three interceptions and two sacks.
Fletcher was the only player in the NFL with at least three interceptions and two sacks as the Redskins won all five games during the month. He had at least a sack or an interception in each of the last four games.
Only two other Redskins players have been given the honor – linebacker Wilber Marshall, who was recognized in October 1991 and October 1992, and linebacker Marcus Washington, honored in December 2005.
The last Redskins player to earn player of the month recognition was running back Clinton Portis, who won the offensive award in October 2008.
