Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III passed all concussion tests and will be cleared to practice on Wednesday, reports CSNWashington. 

Griffin suffered a mild concussion when he was hit during the third quarter of the Redskins’ 24-17 defeat to the Falcons on Sunday.

Citing a team source, Griffin passed cardio and agility tests today. That, along with some baseline tests and clearance by an independent neurologist, were what he needed to be able to practice on Wednesday.

His participation in practice will be on a non-contact basis, which is normal for quarterbacks.

Under NFL rules, Griffin must be cleared by a team physician and an independent neurological consultant before practicing or playing in a game. The Redskins play Sunday at home against the Minnesota Vikings.
