* Redskins say RG3 ‘looks good’ after concussion: Robert Griffin III felt good enough to attend something called a Rookie Success Program meeting Monday morning and seemed, by all accounts, to be doing just fine on the day after suffering his first NFL concussion.

• Bears fan gets throat slashed in Florida bar: Authorities say a Chicago fan who came to Jacksonville for the Bears-Jaguars football game had his throat slashed inside a bar.

Twenty-seven-year-old Matthew Hinson is being held without bond on a murder charge. Jacksonville jail records didn’t list an attorney for Hinson.

He also was the only amateur with the 54-hole lead in the Masters, though he shot 80 in the last round to finish one shot behind in 1956. He made even greater contributions in the broadcast booth.
