LANDOVER, Md., Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Robert Griffin III shook off last week's concussion and rushed for 138 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in Washington's 38-26 win over Minnesota.

Griffin was cleared to play after sustaining a concussion on a hit taken in the Redskins' loss to Atlanta. He showed few ill effects from the blow, carrying the ball 13 times -- including a game-clinching 76-yard scoring run with 2:43 remaining in the game.

Last year's Heisman Trophy winner completed 17-of-22 passes for 182 yards as the Redskins (3-3) broke an eight-game home losing skid.

Alfred Morris and Darrel Young each added a TD for Washington.

The Vikings (4-2) saw their three-game winning streak snapped despite a big day from Christian Ponder, who racked up 352 yards and two touchdowns on 35-of-52 passing. He was intercepted twice.

Percy Harvin made 11 catches for 133 yards for the Vikings.
