Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather’s suspension for illegal hits in Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears was reduced to one game without pay Wednesday from the two-game ban he received earlier this week.
Meriweather’s appeal was heard Wednesday by hearing officer Ted Cottrell. He will now be forced to sit out the Redskins’ game Sunday against the Denver Broncos.
I honestly disagree with this call, because Meriweather has been getting away with penalties for quite some time. I know one thing is for sure, the next time the Redskins face the Bears, several offensive players will be looking for Meriweather.
