SAN DIEGO (AP) - Chargers tight end Antonio Gates said he can understand Brandon Meriweather's frustration after being suspended for multiple helmet-first hits against defenseless receivers.
Meriweather has been vocal this week, saying, ''I guess I've just got to take people's knees out.''
Monday was Meriweather's first day back with the Redskins following the suspension, which was cut in half after an appeal, and he's expected to be on the field Sunday when Washington faces the Chargers.
Meriweather should see plenty of Gates, the Chargers' leading receiver with 42 catches for 497 yards and two touchdowns.
Gates said he's not against rugged play, it's just when hits are delivered.
