Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather and wide receiver Aldrick Robinson were injured in a violent pre-game collision that forced both out of Washington’s game Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, The Washington Times’ Rich Campbell reported.
As Robinson bent over to retrieve a ball in the end zone, Meriweather ran into him while backpedaling. Robinson lay in the end zone, and Meriweather clutched his left knee.
The injury to Meriweather was a blow to a Redskins secondary that had given up 1,050 passing yards and 10 passing touchdowns entering the game. Meriweather had missed the first three games of the Redskins season with a left-knee injury.
Comcast SportsNet Washington posted video of the incident on their website.
