Redskins backup quarterback Robert Griffin III has been cleared to play Sunday against the Dolphins, team president Bruce Allen said on WTOP Friday.

Griffin sustained a concussion in a preseason game against the Lions on Aug. 20. He was initially cleared to play on Aug. 27, then ruled out the following day.

Allen didn’t say whether Griffin would be the second- or third-string signal caller.

“Coach Gruden did say that Kirk Cousins is our starter for this year, and that’s what we’re going to do,” Allen said. “Robert has been cleared to play from the concussion. We got the documentation last night.”

Washington begins its 2015 campaign Sunday at 1 p.m. ET at home against Miami.
