Redskins talk second year safety Su'a Cravens, 22, out of retirement

Redskins change Su'a Cravens' mind about retiring for now

(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.

It's good, though, that Cravens' teammates do seem to be supportive of him, even if they've been blindsided by the report.

The move occurred the day after officials trimmed the roster to 53 players, so the move - and its timing - cost another player a chance to make the team.

Washington, which now is figuring out what list to place Cravens on this week, did not respond to questions about the safety.

The Redskins didn't make coach Jay Gruden available to reporters on Sunday, which marked a change in the schedule.

North Korea Completed Its Most Powerful Nuclear Test Yet
Analysts are divided on whether Sunday's test could lead to more North Korean provocations, or become an opening for dialogue. It has developed projectiles that it says could reach the USA mainland, and some experts agree that's likely true.

Gruden was originally supposed to speak with reporters after practice Sunday, but that news conference was canceled and moved until Tuesday. "He's got to handle what he needs to handle, whether it's mental, whether it's family". Players were left to address the stunning news that Cravens had considered retirement. We're here to support him. The designation would keep him out of game action for at least eight weeks, and the Redskins would have to pay Cravens his full 2017 salary, plus another 25 percent of his signing bonus (which would be a steep price for someone who still could retire before playing in another game).

Excited about his potential as a playmaker, coaches named him the starting strong safety entering spring practices although Cravens hasn't played that position full time since his freshman year at Southern California.

After claiming former Vikings lineman T.J. Clemmings off waivers, the Redskins placed Cravens on the exempt/left squad list.

Cravens is expected to be ready for Week 1, but the team may have to rely on youngsters Deshazor Everett, Montae Nicholson and Stefan McClure. The 6-foot, 195-pound Texas A&M product a year ago converted from cornerback to safety.
