TAMPA, Fla. | Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather and receiver Aldrick Robinson left the field after colliding during warm-ups Sunday little more than two hours before kickoff against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Meriweather’s left knee hit Robinson in the head as Robinson bent over to pick up a ball in the end zone, according to people who were on the field at the time of the incident.
Meriweather missed the first three games of the season with a left knee sprain. He was listed on Friday’s injury report as probable.
Robinson stayed prone for minutes after the collision as medical personnel and members of the training staff tended to him. He obviously was shaken up as he walked slowly off the field.
