Robert Griffin III cleared to practice
According to the Washington Post, Griffin III has been cleared to practice on Wednesday.
The Washington Redskins are optimistic that quarterback Robert Griffin III will be ready for their Week 6 game against the Minnesota Vikings, despite the rookie suffering a concussion on Sunday, according to ESPN.
"We should find out in the next few days exactly what happens," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said. "Right now it looks good. I'm not really sure if it stays that way."
Griffin was knocked out of the Redskins' Week 5 loss to the Atlanta Falcons while scrambling on a broken play. Griffin's attempt at a slide was cut short by the body of Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, who made contact with Griffin's head on the way down.
Following Sunday's loss, Griffin expressed his own optimism that he would be good to play in Week 6. "Thank you for all the prayers & support I'm ok and I think after all the testing I will play next week," Griffin tweeted.
