Su'a Cravens

Cravens has missed the past three weeks after having arthroscopic surgery on his knee.

The Washington Redskins almost lost their 22-year old safety this weekend - not to an injury or a suspension, but to retirement. He may be wondering if it's all worth it and has said multiple times football doesn't define him. (He also saw time at linebacker last season, as he did in college.) He injured his knee in the team's first preseason game and had surgery to fix a torn meniscus but was expected to be ready for the opener against the Eagles.

This will give Washington an exemption for Cravens on its 53-man roster. Cravens alarmed fans by describing the glasses as something he'd have to wear for the rest of his life, but later said he'd in fact suffered no permanent damage from the concussion.

"He has to handle what he needs to handle, whether mental or with his family".

According to The Post's report, Cravens, in a group text message, informed the defensive backs of his decision to retire. "Hopefully we'll be able to get him back at a later date, but if we don't have him back when we want to, at least he'll be in the room and still have a major influence on the team and the defense". Whatever he has to do, we're here to support him.

West Virginia vs. Virginia Tech
No. 21 Virginia Tech and No. 22 West Virginia renew their rivalry Sunday night at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. It was Jennings and Grier who helped tie the score earlier in the fourth quarter with a 60-yard pitch and catch.

Fellow Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger told ESPN the news of Cravens' possible retirement was "shocking".

Cravens wasn't at Redskins practice this morning. He added that you never know if a player loves the game until he faces adversity.? "Whatever he's dealing with I'm praying for him".

As Gruden mentioned, Hall remains a valuable mentor for the defensive backs group, in particular guiding seventh-round draft pick and cornerback Joshua Holsey, who made a strong impression throughout camp and preseason to make the team as the backup nickel corner. "But over the long run you will get exposed if you don't love the game because through the ups and downs, times get tough".
