Life Without Su'a Cravens on Redskins

Life Without Su'a Cravens on Redskins

His knee injury is expected to keep Cravens out of Washington's regular-season opener against the Eagles. It's unknown how much of the decision (if any) is health or injury related-the Post report mentions "personal issues that played a role in his decision". He may be wondering if it's all worth it and has said multiple times football doesn't define him.

The 22-year-old Cravens, Washington's expected starter at strong safety, has been out since August 15 following knee surgery to fix a torn meniscus, but was expected to return to practice this week to prepare for the season opener September 10 against Philadelphia.

He didn't practice Sunday morning. Before Sunday, fans had been told that Cravens would be ready to go, playing alongside D.J. Swearinger at safety.

Latest North Korean missile test continues to strain global relations
So the question is whether North Korea will put some checks on itself as it seeks to expand its weapons tests in the Pacific. Still, it's unclear whether the North will ever act on its threat to fire missiles at the "advanced base of invasion".

Cravens just turned 22 in July. "(Cravens has) got to handle what he needs to handle, whether it's mental, whether it's family.

But Saturday night, Cravens informed his fellow defensive backs in a group text message that he was retiring, a second person familiar with the situation said. This isn't first time he's considered retirement, I'm told. "We're here to support him", Swearinger said. ESPN reported that Cravens informed a handful of teammates the prior day that he meant to notify the team of his retirement. That's something tough. I'm not in no shoes where I can really speak on it.

Cravens appeared in 11 games last season with the Redskins as a rookie, making three starts. "Whatever he's dealing with I'm praying for him". You can hate me or love me. "Hopefully he'll deal with what he has to deal with and be back out here".

Jermaine Kearse dealt to Jets
Richardson was the fourth overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft and made an immediate impact with the Jets. The Seahawks were tied for third in the National Football League in sacks last season with 42.

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.

Added Hall: "You know, when you stop learning, it's the day you don't get better".
