Robert Griffin III passed the necessary tests today and the will be able to practice on Wednesday according to Chick Hernandez of Comcast SportsNet.

Citing a team source, Hernandez said that Griffin passed cardio and agility tests today. That, along with some baseline tests and clearance by an independent neurologist, were what he needed to be able to practice on Wednesday.

His participation in practice will be on a non-contact basis, which is normal for quarterbacks.

According to Hernandez, Griffin will be evaluated after each practice. If he stays free of symptoms through practice, he will play on Sunday against the Vikings.

Griffin suffered what Mike Shanahan said was a mild concussion when he was hit while scrambling during the third quarter of the Redskins' loss to the Falcons on Sunday. He went home after the game and later tweeted that he thought he would be able to play against Minnesota.
