Not only did a medically-cleared Robert Griffin III return to practice Wednesday for the Washington Redskins, but RG3 felt good in doing so. 

"I felt sharp," Griffin said, according to Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington. "I felt good. No symptoms of a concussion or anything like that. No dizziness or [being] off balance. I'm not just saying that."

Griffin, who also admitted he has to work to avoid taking shots like that, will play Sunday against Minnesota unless he suffers a setback between now and then.

 

On to what else is being talked about in the league's most popular division...

Dallas Cowboys

From Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News: Ray Lewis really appreciates how Sean Lee plays.

Of course, that makes sense when you consider that, according to Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Lee is trying to be like Lewis.

 

New York Giants

From Jorge Castillo of the Newark Star-Ledger: Martellus Bennett plans to play against San Francisco despite the fact he "messed some s--- up" in his knee last week.

From Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News: Victor Cruz won't be cool with Carlos Rogers mocking his salsa dance again.

 

Philadelphia Eagles

Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com sees a potential opening for Casey Matthews to get some relevant reps again.

CSN Philly's John Gonzalez asks how the Eagles will contain Calvin Johnson.

 

Washington Redskins

Next kicker up in Washington: Kai Forbath. Stephen Whyno and Rich Campbell of the Washington Times offer up some details on the 25-year-old.

Campbell also writes about Santana Moss' 500th catch as a Redskin, a milestone that was reached quietly last week.
