Brandon Meriweather evaluated for concussion

Washington safety Brandon Meriweather has left today’s game at Arizona to be evaluated for a concussion.

Meriweather tackled Cardinals tight end John Carlson on the first play of the game and was shaken up. He walked off the field slowly and went to the locker room.

Meriweather has a history of concussions and also has a history of giving other players concussions, and he’s been suspended for violating the league’s rules on helmet-to-helmet contact. But his hit on Carlson was low and not illegal.

After serving a two-game suspension to start the season, Meriweather has started the last four games.

UPDATE 5:15 p.m. ET: The team announced that Meriweather was cleared to return
