Found October 21, 2013 on NFL Trade Rumors:
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the NFL is expected to suspend Redskins S Brandon Meriweather for one to two games. Schefter adds that the exact discipline still is being decided. Meriweather has already received a $42,000 fine this season for a hit on Packers rookie RB Eddie Lacy. On top of that, Meriweather has received fines of $45,000 in 2011 and another $50,000 for a hit in 2010, so it’s to the point where a suspension is likely the next course of action from the league. Meriweather was flagged for personal foul after he collided with Bears WR Alshon Jeffery on a helment-to-helmet. “I feel every hit I took was a legal hit,” he said, via ESPN.com. “I wasn’t trying to be dirty. I wasn’t trying to hurt nobody. I didn’t lead with, lunge with my head. I used my shoulders like they told me to do.“ The post Report: NFL Expected To Suspend Redskins S Brandon Meriweather appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
