The Redskins will be without safety Brandon Meriweather for about another four weeks after he and Aldrick Robinson had a collision before last weeks game at Tampa.
Head coach Mike Shanahan stated today that Meriweather won’t be back for a couple weeks.
“I’d say it’s going to take Brandon in the area of four weeks before he comes back,” Shanahan said. “That’s just guessing. That’s what our doctors think right now, looking at his knee.”
Meriweather first hurt the knee during the preseason and damaged it again during practice on Sept. 3. He was scheduled to make his debut for the Redskins on Sept. 30 when he ran into Robinson during pregame warm-ups and fell awkwardly on the knee.
Shanahan said Meriweather sustained second- and third-degree sprains of his MCL and his PCL. A third-degree sprain is a torn ligament, though it’s not clear which of the two Meriweather tore.
