Ex-Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather suffers season-ending injury

Former Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather [1], a two-time Pro Bowler, suffered a season-ending tear of the ACL in his right knee in his first and only game of the 2012 season for the Washington Redskins [2]. Meriweather, who signed with Washington as a free agent this spring, had missed all of the Redskins season until Sunday due to a pair of left knee ligament sprains suffered in training camp. He reinjured the knee twice — including once in warmups before he was to be activated in Week 4 — before finally getting on the field in Washington’s 31-6 win over the Eagles on Sunday. Meriweather was a force, with an interception and seven tackles, but he blew out his knee without contact early in the third quarter.

Per the AP story:

“I want to start off by saying I’m sorry to all the redskins fan. Y’all are the best,” Meriweather posted on Twitter shortly after receiving the diagnosis. “But this was a bad season for me.”
