The Redskins have ruled safety Brandon Meriweather and wide receiver Pierre Garcon out of Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.
Meriweather has not played all season because of a knee injury. He practiced this week, and the Redskins hope he plays after their bye week.
Coach Mike Shanahan called it a positive sign that Meriweather had a good week of practice. Garcon is to test his ailing foot after the bye.
