TAMPA, Fla. — Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather and receiver Aldrick Robinson are inactive for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after they collided during warm-ups a little more than two hours before kickoff.

Meriweather hit Robinson in the head as Robinson bent over to pick up a ball in the end zone, as seen on a video posted on NFL.com Sunday afternoon. Robinson was knocked out, and Meriweather writhed in pain, grabbing his left knee.

Meriweather was expected to make his Redskins regular season debut after missing the first three games of the season with a left knee sprain. He was listed as probable on Friday’s injury report.

Veteran Reed Doughty will start in his place at strong safety. DeJon Gomes started the first three games, but he was quiet in last week’s loss to Cincinnati. Missed tackles and bad angles were problematic, and he wasn’t explosive around the line of scrimmage.

Robinson stayed prone for minutes after the collision as medical personnel and members of the Redskins training staff tended to him. He obviously was shaken up as he walked slowly off the field. Pierre Garcon (right foot) is active and is expected to start at X receiver. Leonard Hankerson is expected to start at Z.

CSN Washington recorded video of the collision, according to a network employee. Print media are not permitted on the field before the game.
