Brandon Meriweather suspended.

The NFL suspended Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather for the first two games of the season after he delivered another helmet-to-helmet hit.

The NFL has fined Meriweather five times for illegal hits to defenseless players over his career, including a $42, 000 fine for a hit on Green Bay's Eddie Lacy last season.

After a hit on Chicago wide receiver Brandon Marshall last October, the NFL suspended Meriweather for the first time.

Redskins long snapper Nick Sundberg said it seems odd Meriweather got the same penalty that Ravens running back Ray Rice received.
