NFL's Vincent defends Meriweather's penalty Troy Vincent, the NFL's new executive vice president of football operations and a former defensive back, defended the two-game suspension he gave Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather for a preseason hit on Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith.
Meriweather to appeal suspension amid support Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather will appeal his two-game suspension for another illegal hit, amid strong support from teammates and coaches -- and fellow safety Ryan Clark calling out Troy Vincent.
Green Bay's offense looks to build on its strong performance last week working against a Washington defense that has been one of the best in the league thus far. The Packers should be aggressive early, as some big plays from QB Brett Favre will take the crowd out of the game and help open up the running game for RB Ahman Green.
