NFC East injury report: Brandon Meriwether, Kenny Phillips hurting after Week 4

The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Washington Redskins Brandon Meriwether and Aldrick Robinson will have lasting effects from a pregame collision, while Kenny Phillips' ability to play in the New York Giants' next game is still up in the air after hurting his knee.

The biggest hit against the Washington Redskins came before the game, and they were the ones to deliver it: safety Brandon Meriwether will miss his team's Week 5 game against the Atlanta Falcons and wide receiver Aldrick Robinson might as well after the pair inadvertently collided in pregame warmups.

Both players were unable to go Sunday after the crash, which reinjured a pre-existing knee issue for Meriwether and gave Robinson a concussion. It's already been determined that Meriwether's MCL and PCL will not be ready for Sunday after the hit, while Robinson will need to be symptom free after being entered into the league's concussion evaluation program, since he was knocked out cold for over a minute after his head collided with Meriwether's knee.

Also for the Redskins, cornerback Cedric Griffin's status is unclear, as there is no word on the hamstring injury that kept him out of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game on Sunday.

For the New York Giants, Kenny Phillips hurt his MCL trying to change directions with Lesean McCoy, with Tom Coughlin terming his status "week-to-week". Hakeem Nicks' swollen knee purportedly has not improved with the time off after missing the team's last two games, but Coughlin said he did not know the wide receiver's status for Week 5's game against the Cleveland Browns.

For the Philadelphia Eagles, offensive tackle King Dunlap and linebacker Akeem Jordan are both on the mend from hamstring injuries that sidelined them Sunday night against the Giants. Dunlap will practice Wednesday, and while the plan going forward is uncertain for Jordan, Andy Reid says his leg is improving.

The Dallas Cowboys didn't suffer any major injuries in their Monday night game against the Chicago Bears.
