Report: Meriweather punished for hits in Packers game

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Sep 18, 2013

Two helmet-to-helmet hits on Green Bay Packers running backs have Washington safety Brandon Meriweather a little lighter in the pocketbook.

According to USA Today reporter Tom Pelissero:

One of the hits, on running back Eddie Lacy,

knocked the back out of the game with a concussion

.

The other hit on James Starks gave Meriweather a concussion.
