Robert Griffin practices, says 'I felt good'

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III participated in practice today and said he’s had no recurring symptoms after being knocked out of Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons at FedEx Field with a concussion.

Griffin underwent further testing following practice, according to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, and said, “I felt good.”

Two questions remain: Will Griffin be able to play Sunday when the Redskins host the Minnesota Vikings and will he change his running style following the play? Griffin has yet to be cleared for contact and while everything looks good at this point, it’s not a lock he will face the Vikings.

As far as changing his running style, that will be interesting. Griffin was knocked out of the game on a play along the sideline when he possibly could have slid to avoid contact or gone out of bounds.

“It doesn’t make you less aggressive,” Griffin said. “But it’s a learning lesson. Life is more important than the game of football.”
