In the Washington Redskins' preseason game last Thursday, Robert Griffin III was forced from action with a concussion. Some speculated that this would keep Griffin out of action for an extended period, but when the Redskins practiced on Sunday, Griffin was taking first team offensive snaps.

The turnaround from Thursday's game to Sunday's practice is a quick one for someone who suffered a concussion. But Griffin was there in full pads and ready to roll during Sunday's team practice.

After practice, head coach Jay Gruden told reporters that Griffin has not been fully cleared yet, but he's taking the necessary steps to play Saturday against the Ravens, according to Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington.

Griffin will need a much better performance from his first team offensive line if he's going to stay in tact through the Redskins' dress rehearsal preseason game this week. Keep an eye on his status throughout the week as he has not been cleared just yet.
