As explained on Sunday, Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather is facing a possible suspension after inflicting a pair of illegal hits on Sunday against Bears receivers.
A league source says suspension definitely is on the table. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Meriweather is expected to be suspended for at least one game.
Any decision will be subject to appeal to Matt Birk or Ted Cottrell. Last month, Birk overturned a one-game suspension that had been imposed on safety Dashon Goldson.
Meriweather was fined $42,000 last month for violating the new rule prohibiting use of the crown of the helmet when hitting Packers running back Eddie Lacy.
