Redskins_Brandon_Meriweather_2013As of Tuesday, it was known that the appeal hearing regarding the two-game suspension imposed on Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather would happen on Wednesday. It wasn’t known whether it would be handled by Ted Cottrell or Matt Birk.

Per a league source, Cottrell is handling the hearing.

Ed Werder of ESPN reports that the hearing will happen Wednesday afternoon, which means that Meriweather will miss Wednesday’s practice. (Last month, Birk overturned the one-game suspension imposed on Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson in time for Goldson to make it to Wednesday’s practice.)
