Brandon Meriweather’s MRI reveals no significant damage


According to Mark Maske of The Washington Post, an MRI on Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather’s knee has revealed that he didn’t suffer any significant damage to his knee during Saturday night’s preseason game against the Bears.

“Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather’s MRI exam Sunday of his injured left knee revealed no significant damage, according to a person with knowledge of the test result.

“It’s not clear how long Meriweather will be sidelined but it appears that the Redskins avoided suffering a loss to their defense, just as they did with linebacker Brian Orakpo’s injury. According to Orakpo’s agent, Ben Dogra, the MRI taken Sunday of the injury to the area of Orakpo’s left shoulder showed no serious injury and Orakpo is expected to play in the regular season opener,” wrote Maske.
