Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is expected to practice Wednesday after passing a series of concussion tests Monday and Tuesday, a source said Tuesday night. The source requested anonymity because the team has not publicized Griffin’s status.
Quarterbacks usually are not subjected to contact at practice, and that will be the case with Griffin as he works back from a blow to the head he suffered while scrambling on third-and-goal against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
Griffin left the game and was immediately subjected to NFL return-to-play concussion protocol after failing a memory test. He could not remember the score of the game and what quarter it was.
Griffin met with an independent neurologist on Monday. He also underwent neurophysiological tests on Monday while at rest and on Tuesday after exercising. Griffin had to be asymptomatic in order to be cleared to practice, and he must remain so in order to practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
