Life Without Su'a Cravens on Redskins

Life Without Su'a Cravens on Redskins

Cravens had arthroscopic surgery on his knee in early August, and though he hasn't yet returned to practice, he was expected to return to action before Week 1, and was projected as Washington's starting strong safety. He also notes that this isn't the first time that Cravens has considered retirement, despite being just 22 years old and having played only a single year in the league. He may be wondering if it's all worth it and has said multiple times football doesn't define him. There was obviously a pattern of behavior that followed him to the National Football League, as it has been reported that he tried to quit during his rookie year, when injury forced him to miss the team's final few games of the season. Per the Post, Cravens' teammates felt he was losing his "zeal for the game" after a concussion last October that he said affected his vision.

Redskins officials, when forming the 53-man roster on Saturday, went with five safeties (Cravens, Swearinger, Deshazor Everett, rookie Montae Nicholson and first-year pro Stefan McClure). ESPN reported that Cravens informed a handful of teammates the prior day that he meant to notify the team of his retirement.

"He has to handle what he needs to handle, whether mental or with his family". "That's tough. I'm not in those shoes, so I can't speak on him, so whatever he's dealing with I'm praying for him and hopefully he'll be back".

Cravens told fellow defensive backs Saturday night in a group text message.

"If it's family issues, personal issues, whatever he's dealing with, I'm supportive". If the ultra-talented Cravens does indeed retire, it would be a major blow for the Redskins.

One person who played with Cravens in the past and considers him a friend said he was not surprised when he heard the news Sunday. Either way my response is the same to both groups, I love yal (sic) and thank yal. You all will really get to know me. Gruden did not address the media Sunday but will do so Tuesday.

Japan and South Korea said it was around 10 times more powerful than the tremor picked up after the last test a year ago. It said the underground test site did not leak radioactive materials, which would make such a determination even harder.
