Brandon Meriweather given two-game ban

Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather is suspended by the NFL for two games for violating their rules on player safety.

Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather has been suspended by the NFL for two games for violating safety rules.

The defensive back was found guilty of striking two Chicago Bears receivers in the head with his helmet during his side's win at FedEx Field.

The NFL cited that they had suspended Meriweather for "repeat violations this season of NFL safety rules prohibiting hits to the head and neck area of defenceless players."

The 29-year-old was fined $42,000 (£26,000) earlier this year for striking Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy in a similar incident.
