Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is expected to practice on Wednesday after suffering a concussion in last weekend's loss to the Atlanta Falcons. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is expected to practice Wednesday, Mark Maske of The Washington Post reports. The report, which cites a person familiar with the situation, says Griffin has been cleared to participate barring any setbacks from the concussion. The rookie quarterback would not be subjected to contact in practice should he participate, according to the report. Griffin's status for Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings has not been determined.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin isn't officially playing on Sunday but participating in practice would seem to put him on track to be out there against the Vikings. Fantasy owners should monitor injury reports during the week and make sure he doesn't suffer any setbacks. Griffin would be a low-end No. 1 fantasy starter if he's cleared to play.
