Robert Griffin III participates in Redskins’ practice

Rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III is participating in the Washington Redskins’ practice Wednesday at Redskins Park.

Griffin, who suffered a concussion during Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons at FedEx Field, was on the field for the portion of practice that was open to media members. He participated in stretching and individual drills.

It was not clear whether Griffin would participate in full team drills. That portion of practice is not open to media members. A person familiar with the situation said Tuesday that Griffin would participate in Wednesday’s practice on a non-contact basis. However, quarterbacks generally are not hit during NFL practices even when they’re not hurt.

Griffin’s participation in Wednesday’s practice does not guarantee that he will play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings at FedEx Field but appears to be a significant step in that direction. Griffin still must be cleared by doctors to resume contact in practice or a game.
