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.
The Redskins held an open locker room today as they prepare for the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, which is their final game before the bye week and they could be gettting some much needed help in their secondary.
The initial assumption was that Fletcher possibly experienced a concussion during a previous game. But after an extensive visit with a neurologist, doctors were able to rule out a concussion as the source for his balance issues. So the question is, if it’s not a head injury, why the balance issues?
This Sunday will be a measuring stick for the Redskins who seek to prove to themselves that they can be a winning ball club in the National Football League.
