Robert Griffin III is taking Monday off and has an outside chance of practicing this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) is resting Monday and is day-to-day for now. According to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan, RG3 will take tests Monday, and possibly do some cardio work Tuesday. The team will evaluate him then and he'll practice on Wednesday if there's no symptoms. RG3 left Sunday's game against the Falcons with what's being called a "mild concussion."

Fantasy Impact: Reportedly, RG3 couldn't remember what quarter it was after taking the hit, so the team has an odd definition of "mild". Regardless, we will be monitoring his progress very closely this week as the Redskins prepare for the Minnesota Vikings. If he's cleared to play Sunday, fantasy owners can continue plugging him in as a QB2.
