Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's concussion is not considered severe, and he could play next week against the Ravens.
Griffin sustained a concussion and a shoulder stinger in the Redskins' 21–17 win over the Lions on Thursday. Lions defensive end Corey Wootton hit Griffin in the second quarter of the game as Griffin was scrambling to recover a fumble. Coach Jay Gruden said Griffin went through concussion protocol and that his shoulder was not injured.
Griffin has dealt with multiple injuries throughout his three-year career, including undergoing reconstructive surgery on his right knee after sustaining a torn ACL in a 2013 playoff game.
Griffin is Washington's starting quarterback, but would be replaced by Colt McCoy if he were sidelined for significant time.
