Brandon Meriweather issued an apology by proxy Thursday, with the head of the NFL players’ union releasing a statement saying that the Washington Redskins safety is “sorry” over comments made about targeting opponents’ knees.
Marshall earned respect from his team for how he handled Brandon Meriweather’s comments.
Though it’s been over a week since Brandon Marshall said Brandon Meriweather has no place in the NFL, the Redskins safety had a strong response to the Bears wide receiver.
It’s inevitably going to happen. One of these days a player is going to die because of an illegal hit.
Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather’s appeal seemingly worked.
Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall apparently heard what Bears tight end Martellus Bennett said about his teammate Brandon Meriweather.
When asked what he thinks about Meriweather, Bears tight end Martellus Bennett didn’t hold back, as he rarely does.
The NFL has suspended Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather for two games for “repeat violations of safety rules.”
Brandon Meriweather, a noted headhunter in the NFL, was called for two personal fouls Sunday for targeting a defenseless receiver.

With the Bears 3-3, let’s see what’s on the mind of Bears fans in this week’s edition of Laurence Holmes’ mailbag.
After the Bears were embarrassed on a national stage in their Monday night loss to the Lions, it seemed obvious change was coming.
Lovie Smith does appear to have his own supply of paper towels, though, that he’s been able to pull out of the supply closet, to unroll as needed to mop up the pessimism (and who would engage in that, dare I ask?) and keep his team from slipping into the abyss.
Though listed as doubtful with a sprained MCL, Bears defensive end Julius Pepper is active for Sunday night’s contest against the Vikings.
If Monday was a “must have”, then Sunday is a must win. If the Bears were to lose against Minnesota, they would drop to 2-4, with all four losses coming in the NFC. It would also make them 0-3 in the division. When it comes to tie-breaker math, that ain’t good. So here’s what I’m watching for Sunday night:
Chris Harris and Brandon Meriweather are expected to be benched in favor of Major Wright and Chris Conte for Sunday’s game. Wright and Conte are expected to get the first-team reps at strong and free safety, respectively, during Thursday’s practice.
