Brandon Meriweather played one half, and under 10 snaps in the third quarter, of the Redskins game against the Eagles. In that game, he recorded 7 tackles, 1 INT and 2 PDs. This was his only regular season appearance for the Redskins due to a sprained MCL and PCL in his left knee that kept him sidelined for two pre-season games and the first nine regular season games.

He tore the ACL in his right knee in the third quarter and will be placed on the injured reserve list to accompany two other defensive starters: Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker.

Meriweather's health is really unraveling. Wonder if he's starting to appreciate all that talent he's thrown away.

Really too bad. He was having a very nice day, in his 2012 and Redskins debut, prior to the injury occurring.

This is from the Redskins official Twitter feed https://mobile.twitter.com/Redskins/status/270618632659288067?p=v

Meriweather will be placed in injured reserve and is expected to have surgery with a six month recovery time. This is his first NFL injury.


Excuse me? His first NFL Injury?

Maybe this helps him get his record label off the ground. We need more songs like this:

Meriweather has been steadily going downhill for a couple of years now.. I wish injury on nobody though, hope he can recover quickly.

He looked great in preseason and in his playing time sunday,head and shoulders above the rest of our secondary. Keep in mind the guy has the talent.

What terrible luck for him and the Redskins. Comes back from an injury to only suffer a season ending one.

Redskins can't catch a break on their defense getting healthy either.
