The Washington Redskins have announced that quarterback Robert Griffin III will miss Saturday's preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens due to a concussion.

The news comes one day after the team announced Griffin was cleared to play.

NFL independent neurologist Robert Kurtzke said in a statement that Griffin “should be held from gameplay this weekend and be retested in one (to) two weeks before a firm conclusion to return to gameplay can be made.”

Griffin originally sustained the concussion last week against the Detroit Lions in a 21–17 Redskins win, and was going through the NFL’s concussion protocol.

He played four series in the game and went 2-for-5 with two fumbles and three sacks. 

Over his first two preseason appearances, Griffin was 6-for-13 for 44 yards and zero touchdowns.
