Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Thursday that receiver Aldrick Robinson passed his concussion tests and has been cleared to play. Robinson was knocked out prior to Sunday’s game during a collision with safety Brandon Meriweather.

Shanahan said cornerback Cedric Griffin (hamstring ) didn’t practice Thursday. Limited in practice were running back Evan Royster (knee) and receiver Brandon Banks (hip).  But
