Washington Redskins starting strong safety Brandon Meriweather will likely be listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. If Meriweather can't play, veteran Reed Doughty will likely start in his place. With Meriweather out, Washington may be more limited in the kinds of blitz packages they can employ.
