Shanahan Says He Thinks Meriweather Will Be Fine For Camp

NFL: Preseason-Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Washington Redskins

Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said he expects safety Brandon Meriweather, who’s working his way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, to be “fine” for training camp, Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports.

“I think Brandon will be fine once we get to camp. … He did a good job in his drill work,” Shanahan said following Thursday’s offseason practice at Redskins Park. “The one thing you don’t want to do when somebody hurts his knee is get him going too quickly — just let it heal and strengthen the muscles around the knee. Right now he looks pretty good.”

Meriweather was less definitive about his status for the outset of training camp.

“Any doubt? I don’t know, to be completely honest,” he said after spending Thursday’s organized team activity working on rehabilitation drills. “I never really had a torn ACL so I don’t know what the timetable is like. If you ask me, I’ll tell you I can go today. If you ask me if there’s any doubt, I’ll say no. But if you ask the doctor and the trainer, they may say yes. So to be honest, I really don’t know.”
