Brandon Meriweather Injury: MRI On Left Knee Shows No Significant Damage

Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather underwent an MRI on his left knee Sunday after suffering an injury in a preseason game against the Chicago Bears on Saturday. The test showed no significant damage. Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports that there is no timetable yet for when Meriweather will return.

Meriweather's good injury news is the second of the day for the Redskins, who found out that pass rushing linebacker Brian Orakpo would likely be back for the season opener after leaving Saturday's Bears game with a left shoulder injury.

This is Meriweather's first season with Washington after spending the previous season with the Bears, in which he recorded 19 total tackles and two passes defensed in eleven games. Meriweather was a ball hawk earlier in his career with the New England Patriots, snaring 12 interceptions in his four seasons in Foxboro.
