Aldrick Robinson recovers from pregame collision

Before Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers, Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather ran into receiver Aldrick Robinson, who was walking with his head down. Robinson was knocked unconscious.

Amazingly, Robinson has been cleared to play.

Even more amazingly, coach Mike Shanahan says Robinson could have played last Sunday, after coming to.  (Or is it “coming too”?  Or “coming two”?)

Shanahan says Robinson, who suffered a concussion, was cleared on Wednesday to return to practice.

The news isn’t as good for Meriweather, who already has been scratched due to an aggravation of the knee injury that had caused him to miss the first three games of the season.

    He is part of last year’s great draft class, of which this year’s is already better.

    Kudos to GM Allen and the coaching staff.

    thanks for letting us know who this guy is, because if you didn’t he, of the great draft class of last year, nobody would know.

    btw, last year’s great draft class produced one starter. (two if you count a guy named jarvis jenkins who’s playing in place of somebody whos injured for the year).

    so……one player. One starter. One. Wow. That’s awesome. But…..that’s a redskin fan for ya…..

    “coming two” would imply that Meriweather hit him in the “other” head. He definitly wouldn’t have been able to play after that.

    As usual, Merriweather was somewhere that his teammates didn’t expect …

    Ryan Kerrigan & Leonard Hankerson start, Aldrick Robinson is a deep threat (wouldn’t trust him anywhere else) Jarvis Jenkins was in the rotation at lineman, he would start on a couple other squads. Roy Helu is a great 3rd down back (and would be a top 15 back if he could pass block.)
