Meriweather’s Suspension Reduced To One Game

An expedited appeal hearing has resulted in an even more expedited outcome.

The NFL has announced that Ted Cottrell has reduced the two-game suspension imposed earlier this week on Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather to one game.

Cottrell, jointly hired and paid by the NFL and the NFLPA, had final say on the matter. Meriweather will miss Sunday’s game against the Broncos, and he’ll be able to rejoin the team on Monday, in advance of the Week Nine game against the Chargers.
