ASHBURN, Va. (CBSDC) — The first injury report of the season is out for the Washington Redskins and safety Brandon Meriweather is the biggest concern heading into Week 1.

Meriweather was limited in Thursday’s practice with a groin issue unrelated to the troublesome knee that forced him to miss all but a sliver of last season.

“Hopefully he’s full speed tomorrow,” Mike Shanahan said. “It’s the groin. The knee is fine. It happened on Monday with the groin. It had nothing to do with the game.”

Nose tackle Barry Cofield (hand) had full participation in practice and continues to sport a large club over his broken digits.

Shanahan says Cofield will “experiment” with the protective device in the coming days and may have his fingers free against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday barring a setback.

Robert Griffin III was not listed on the inaugural injury report.
