Robert Griffin was knocked out of the third quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons with what the Washington Redskins called a “mild concussion” but he appeared to be doing well today, according to teammates.

Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports that backup quarterback Kirk Cousins said Griffin didn’t show any effects from the injury during a rookie meeting earlier today.

We had our mandatory rookie success program this morning, and Robert was there,” Cousins said, according to the report. “He seemed fine, seemed in good spirits. He appeared to be doing well.”

It’s too early in the week to tell what will happen before the Redskins host the Minnesota Vikings this coming week. Cousins or veteran Rex Grossman could get the call if Griffin is not ready. Grossman has been the third quarterback to this point.

“I think he’ll be fine,” Grossman said of the sensational rookie Griffin. “I have no idea, and haven’t talked to anybody. But he seemed like he was with it after the game, and he’s tough, and I’m sure he’ll fight through this.”

Griffin has already taken to Twitter and said he expects to pass mandatory testing for lingering concussion symptoms this week and be cleared to face the Vikings. Stay tuned.
