Meriweather will miss at least a week after pre-game collision

Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather will miss at least a week and maybe more after aggravating the MCL and PCL injuries in his left knee in a pre-game collision with a teammate.

“I think we’ll be able to tell in a week’s time exactly the length it will be, but right now he will be out for the next game,” Redskins coach Shanahan said, via Rich Campbell of the Washington Times.

Meriweather collided with wide receiver Aldrick Robinson during warm-ups. Shanahan said even though the knee was bothering him previously, he would have been active for the game against the Buccaneers if not for the freak accident.

It would have been his first game since spraining his knee in a preseason game, and then again in practice in early September.

Robinson was knocked unconscious before he hit the ground, after Meriweather ran into him and their heads collided.

“He was knocked out for over a minute,” Shanahan said. “So any time you’re knocked out for that length of time, you go through a procedure according to the NFL. He’s been with the doctors today, and he feels very good right now. It looks good, but he’s going to have to take some tests over the next couple days. And if he looks OK and he passes those tests, he’ll be able to practice and potentially play. If not, then he’ll have to wait until his signs are correct.”

And maybe the Redskins will consider a traffic cop as the get ready for games.

    I was missing Sean Taylor badly, and now, I’m even starting to miss Mr. Perpetual Sore Achilles: LaRon Landry. Our secondary is flat-out awful.

    Hey, as long as Meriweather didn’t shoot Robinson or stomp on his head when he was on the grond, the Redskins probably feel they’re getting off easy.

    Robinson should have been paying attention. He was walking around looking at his feet on a field where people are practicing.

    I’ve watched Meriweather for years on the Patriots and the Bears. What makes this even a freakier injury is that 9 out of 10 times he whiffs and doesn’t make contact with the receiver.
