On the Packers first drive of the game against Washington, second-round draft pick Eddie Lacy took a helmet-to-helmet shot from Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather that is sure to draw a fine from the league. It also knocked Lacy from the game with a concussion.

Meriweather, who wasn't penalized on the play, met up with Lacy after he had gained 10 yards on his only carry of the day, and it took Lacy a few moments to rise from the turf. Packers trainers attended to him on the field, and then walked him off of it in order to bring him to the locker room.

This only was Meriweather's second start in his 18-game tenure with the team, but it's obvious, he's still a hard hitter. And a hard hitter who likely will be lighter in the wallet this time next week.

James Starks replaced Lacy at running back.
