RG3 will be re-examined Monday

The Redskins home losing streak grew to eight games after Sundays 24-17 loss to the undefeated Falcons.

The immediate concern in the locker room, though, was not the defeat or the teams inexplicable struggles at FedEx Field. It was the condition of quarterback Robert Griffin III, who left the game in the third quarter with a concussion.

At that time, when he wasnt really sure what the score was or what the quarter was, we knew he had a mild concussion, at least according to the doctors, Coach Mike Shanahan said. He feels good right now. A lot better right now. But thats why he didnt go back into the game.

Griffin did not speak to reporters per NFL policy.

Griffin did however send an update via his twitter account.

Team spokesman Tony Wyllie said Griffin was evaluated in the locker room by an independent neurologist, who determined that the quarterback had sustained a concussion.

Griffin was headed home, Wyllie said, and would be reexamined Monday morning in accordance to the NFL protocol regarding concussions. Griffin must pass baseline test and be cleared by an independent neurologist before returning to the practice field.

Wyllie also said that Griffin would not be examined again Sunday night and that there would be no further updates from the team until Monday.

Griffin also was treated for a laceration on his chin that he suffered on the same violent hit by Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon.

Hopefully hes okay, said running back Alfred Morris, who had not yet spoken to Griffin. He a tough guy. Hopefully hell be back next week.

Weatherspoon added: It was just one of those bang-bang plays. He got outside, kept going, and it happened so fast when we hit each other. Unfortunately, he went out of the game. But hopefully hes doing good.

Shanahan is scheduled to address reporters at 3 p.m. Monday.
