Robert Griffin III returned to practice today after passing agility and cardiac tests yesterday, as prescribe by the NFL's concussion protocol.
After practice, RGIII stated that "I felt sharp, felt good, no symptoms of a concussion. " Griffin is also aware of his various responsibilities as the franchise quarterback. He stated that he needs to learn and understand a balancing act, balancing "the player maker that I am and living to play another down." He's right. RGIII needs to learn to slide and pick and choose when to run.
RGIII also said there no doubt he is ready to play on Sunday. That's a good thing for Washington. While rookie QB Kirk Cousins is developing, will learn from his mistakes, and has shown promising flashes, Cousins is not RGIII. The Washington offense needs a health RGIII. Obviously, RGIII is not the decision make on his availability for Sunday. That will be determined by trainers and an independent neurologist.
RGIII did provide some humor, explaining that one play in practice, he ran out of bounds and slid. He received cheers from his teamates.
