Robert Griffin III sustained a mild concussion during the third quarter of the Washington Redskins loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
A team spokesperson says the quarterback will not undergo further testing Sunday night, but will continue to be evaluated during the week.
An independent neurologist examined Griffin in the locker room as Kirk Cousins took over at quarterback. A determination was made to keep Griffin out of the contest after he couldn’t tell the score or what quarter it was.
Griffin was cleared to leave FedEx Field and will not go to the hospital.
He also suffered a chin laceration on the play.
The Redskins initially said Griffin was “shaken up” after he took a shoulder-to-helmet hit from Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon while attempting to slide at the Atlanta 5-yard line with 6:22 remaining in the third quarter.
The play officially went for a two-yard yard sack.
Griffin was first examined on the sideline before he was taken to the locker room by team trainers.
