SAFETY BRANDON MERIWEATHER
The rest of the secondary will have to pick up the slack with the absence of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who has been ruled out with a concussion that he suffered in Week 2. While Jayron Hosley took over for him against the Falcons, there will be a major emphasis on the safeties. One of them, Brandon Meriweather, knows all about Washington, where he played from 2012-2014 and recorded nine interceptions.
"Well, a former safety from the Redskins we know, Brandon Meriweather," Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins said. "And then they also have a rookie in [Landon] Collins who has done some good stuff. I've seen them play well, and be very active, doing a good job moving around, and disguising, and making plays for them."
