Mike Shanahan said that quarterback Robert Griffin III could return to the practice field on Wednesday if he gets through some tests and some physical work without any symptoms.
"He's feeling good," said Shanahan, who talked to Griffin on Monday afternoon, He will go through the tests later on Monday.There has been no vomiting or dizziness, symptoms sometimes associated with concussions.
Griffin was hit by linebacker Sean Weatherspoon as he was scrambling during a pass play near the goal line in the third quarter of yesterday's game against the Falcons. Coach Mike Shanahan said Griffin said that he was "fine" coming off of the field but Shanahan sent him to be examined by doctors after seen a "glassy" look in his eyes.
Griffin initially knew what quarter the game was in and what the score was. But after going back to an examineation room, Griffin did not know the quarter or the score.
Shanahan confirmed that Griffin did not black out.
The NFL concussion protocol says that Griffin will need to pass a set of baseline tests and get cleared by an independent neurologist before returning to the field.
