Robert Griffin III (concussion) will practice on Wednesday for the Washington Redskins but his status for Week 6 won't be determined until Friday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will practice Wednesday but his status for Week 6 won't be determined until Friday, according to coach Mike Shanahan. Shanahan's update confirmed an earlier report that said Griffin was expected to practice Wednesday without contact. The coach added that Griffin would take a concussion test again after practice. Griffin was diagnosed with a concussion after being hit in the head in the third quarter of last weekend's loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The Redskins face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The timetable for a decision on Griffin was not uxexpected, as the team will want to make sure there are no setbacks before announcing its plans for Sunday. Griffin remains a mid-to-low-end No. 1 fantasy starter if he's cleared to play.
