Sort of a freak accident went down Sunday before the Redskins-Buccaneers game when former Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather collided with teammate Aldrick Robinson in the endzone during pregame warmups. Both Meriweather and Robinson were ruled inactive after the collision, which you can watch in the video above.
Robinson, a wide receiver, had been a pretty important member of the ‘Skins passing attack so far this season—catching seven passes for 104 yards and a touchdown to date.
Meriweather, meanwhile, was listed as probable and attempting to make his regular-season debut this week after missing the first three games with a knee injury.
