Brandon Meriweather Suspended Two Games

Brandon Meriweather Suspended Two Games

NFL Shield(ASHBURN, Va.) -- Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather was suspended for the first two games of the season by the NFL on Monday.

The punishment comes after another helmet-to-helmet hit from Meriweather on Baltimore's Torrey Smith over the weekend.

"Meriweather delivered a forceful blow to the head and neck area of a defenseless receiver with no attempt to wrap up or make a conventional tackle of this player," said NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent in a statement.

Meriweather said after the game on Saturday that he did not believe there was anything wrong with the hit on Smith.

"I'm trying to do what the NFL asked me after going through the offseason, and working on the things I need to work on, and the first chance I get, it seems like I failed," he said.

Meriweather has been fined five different times by the league over the course of his career, including a $42,000 fine for a hit on Packers running back Eddie Lacy in 2013. The safety was also suspended two games last year, but had it reduced to one game following an appeal.
