Meriweather, Griffin Among Today's Inactives


For the fifth-consecutive week, Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather has been ruled inactive today, joining fellow defensive back Cedric Griffin.

Quarterback Rex Grossman is also inactive for the fifth time, leaving rookies Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins as the only two active quarterbacks.

Despite his inaction so far, Grossman has remained a fixture on the sideline, coaching Griffin III in clutch moments like last week's 2-minute drive.

Receiver Dezmon Briscoe is listed as inactive this week after being active last week.  Both Pierre Garcon and Aldrick Robinson are active this week after being limited and ruled out, respectively, in Tampa Bay.

Outside linebacker Markus White is inactive again this week, meaning that Rob Jackson and Chris Wilson will fill Brian Orakpo's role off the edge.

Rookie offensive guards Josh LeRibeus and Adam Gettis are both inactive this week, leaving Jordan Black and Maurice Hurt as the primary reserve options at offensive line.

Here is the full list of Redskins inactives today:

  • No. 8 QB Rex Grossman
  • No. 19 WR Dezmon Briscoe
  • No. 20 CB Cedric Griffin
  • No. 31 S Brandon Meriweather
  • No. 55 LB Markus White
  • No. 67 G Josh LeRibeus
  • No. 73 G Adam Gettis.

Redskins receiver Joshua Morgan is expected to start alongside Garcon today, in place of Hankerson.

On the Falcons' side of the ball, no surprises or big names to look for.

Here is the full list of Falcons inactives today:

  • No. 4 QB Dominique Davis
  • No. 30 CB Terrence Johnson
  • No. 45 FB Lousaka Polite
  • No. 76 T Lamar Holmes
  • No. 81 TE Michael Palmer
