ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - A teammate says Robert Griffin III "seems to be doing well" a day after suffering a concussion in the Washington Redskins' loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins said he and Griffin attended a mandatory meeting for rookies Monday morning. Cousins said Griffin looked fine and was "in good spirits."

Griffin was knocked out of Sunday's 24-17 loss in the third quarter on a legal hit to the helmet by linebacker Sean Weatherspoon while scrambling near the sideline.

The No. 2 overall draft pick will have to go through the NFL's return-to-play protocol and before he is cleared to practice. He is also not allowed to speak to reporters until he is symptom-free.

Cousins finished the game in Griffin's place, throwing a touchdown pass and two interceptions.
