(CBS) Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather’s appeal seemingly worked.

According to a report form NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, the league has reduced Meriweather’s two-game suspension to one game without pay.

Meriweather had been suspended for two games after he was flagged twice in Sunday’s Bears-Redskins game for targeting a defenseless receiver.
