Giants' Brandon Meriweather: Ruled out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meriweather (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

With Meriweather unable to play for the first time this season, Craig Dahl is the favorite to start alongside Landon Collins. It won't necessarily be a downgrade for the New York defense, as Meriweather misses a lot of tackles and often struggles in coverage. Collins is easily the superior IDP option.

by Larry Hartstein |

Free agent safety Brandon Meriweather wasn't the same player for the Redskins after he was suspended for illegal hits, reports the Washington Post.
