Robert Griffin III has felt no symptoms from the concussion he sustained last Sunday.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III stated that he felt no symptoms of a concussion while participating in practice on Wednesday. According to the rookie quarterback, he expects to start in Sunday's Week 6 game against the Minnesota Vikings. However, he has yet to be cleared for contact.

Griffin sustained what was described as a mild concussion in the third quarter of Sunday's 24-17 loss against the Atlanta Falcons. While attempting to slide during a rush, Griffin was hit high by Atlanta linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, which caused his upperbody to snap backwards with his head hitting Jonathan Babineaux.

The rookie quarterback explained that he needs to find a balance between being a playmaker and living to play another down. Griffin practiced sliding and running out of bounds during practice on Wednesday, which were welcomed by mock cheers from his teammates.

Griffin explained that his film study hasn't been interrupted by any limitations connected to the injury and is reacting normally to light and sound.
