Robert Griffin III Says He Plans on Playing Sunday vs Vikings

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III expects to pass through testing for lingering concussion symptoms this week and play next Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Griffin was knocked out of the third quarter of Sunday’s 24-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons with what the Redskins classified as a “mild concussion.”

Immediately after the play, an attempted scramble that ended with Griffin getting hit in the head, the quarterback couldn’t tell the team’s medical staff what quarter it was or the score of the game. He didn’t return, and Kirk Cousins took over.

Griffin was said to be feeling better after the game.

Several hours after its completion, he tweeted: Thank you for all the prayers & support I’m ok and I think after all the testing I will play next week.
