Griffin tweeted after the game, "Thank you for all the prayers & support I'm ok and I think after all the testing I will play next week."
The optimism is admirable, but players aren't doctors. It's in their nature that they want to play. The NFL, however, has a series of cognitive tests before a player can return to action -- and it's for a reason. There's no fooling them.
Griffin couldn't remember the quarter or the score of the game after he was hit. So we'll wait and see what the doctors say.
UPDATE: RG3 is "doing alright" headed into Washington's stadium Monday morning, according to NFL.com and NFL Network's Michelle Beisner.
