Brandon Merriweather out 2-4 weeks

Safety Brandon Meriweather sprained two ligaments in his left knee and will miss two to four weeks, coach Mike Shanahan said per John Keim of the Washington Examiner.

Meriweather injured his knee in practice on Monday, hurting the medial collateral ligament and the posterior collateral ligament. Meriweather injured the same knee in the second preseason game vs. Chicago and missed the final two preseason games.

“He was fine until [Monday],” Shanahan said. “He was practicing 100 percent. It was a freak accident. …He feels more optimistic than that, but the doctors felt it would take time.”
