Redskins place S Meriweather on IR


The Washington Redskins placed safety Brandon Meriweather on injured reserve, meaning he will miss the team’s final two games of the season.

The team signed linebacker Steve Beauharnais to take Meriweather’s roster spot.

Meriweather had missed the last two games with a toe injury, and he had a setback in practice Wednesday that led to an MRI.

He finished with 55 tackles, three sacks and three forced fumbles.

Beauharnais, a seventh-round pick by the New England Patriots in 2013, had spent most of this season on Washington’s practice squad.

The Redskins (3-11) play the Eagles on Saturday and conclude the season at home against Dallas on Dec. 28.
