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.
