Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered a head injury against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, but after tests today, Griffin expects to play in the team's Weel 6 game via his Twitter account. Griffin took a huge blow to the head from Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon at the goal line. Griffin was on the verge of scoring a touchdown but failed to make the safe play and duck out of bounds, instead opting to make an extra push towards the end zone.

Fantasy Impact: Robert Griffin III has been one of the most productive quarterbacks in fantasy football this season, so his owners are likely holding their breath with this injury news. Griffin may not miss any time, but he needs to reevaluate how he is playing the position. He has taken an absolute beating in the early part of the season.
