Safety has been a headache for the Redskins ever since its most dynamic performer there over the last three and a half decades, Sean Taylor, was shot and killed in November 2007.
Snake-bitten by injury, Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather is getting sympathy from at least one teammate.
If losing Meriweather wasn’t a big enough blow to the defense, it appears that the burgundy and gold may have to face Dallas without their starting middle linebacker. London Fletcher has not missed a game in his entire 15 season NFL career, but that streak is in serious jeopardy as Fletcher battles a sprained ankle.
The Washington Redskins have placed safety Brandon Meriweather on injured reserve and signed cornerback Jerome Murphy.
The Washington Redskins had their most dominating win under Mike Shanahan as they beat the Philadelphia Eagles 31-6 to go to 4-6 on the year.
Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather says the decision not to re-enter the game after suffering an injury to his right knee was a precautionary one.
Helping the Redskins on Sunday will be the return of wide receiver Pierre Garcon and the regular season debut of safety Brandon Meriweather. Both are expected to start.
When coach Shanahan was asked about Garcon’s ability to push off of his injured foot, the ball coach simply refused to answer the question.
The Redskins came off their bye week refreshed and ready to go against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday and had three key pieces practice, two of which, haven’t practiced in quite a while
After a promising 2011 free agency class, Mike Shanahan hasn’t been able to recreate that success with a 2012 signing period led by Garcon and Wilson. Add the three defensive backs he signed – one of which will never see the field – and this ranks as one of the worst Redskins free agency periods of all-time.
