Washington Safety Brandon Meriweather has been suspended for the first two games of the regular season.
Meriweather committed a helmet to helmet tackle during the preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens this past Saturday.
This is the sixth violation of player safety rules for Meriweather, and he is expected to appeal the decision.
If he is successful in the appeal process, Meriweather could be able to play against the Houston Texans on September 7th.
