The Su'aga continues

NFL: Washington Redskins at Baltimore Ravens Derik Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Su'a Cravens has received medical clearance to resume all football activities and plans to play next season. The Washington Redskins safety shocked the team before the season started by talking about retiring from the NFL after one season. Cravens was reportedly talked out of retirement, but was placed on the team's exempt/left team list. The team then placed him on the reserve/left squad list, ending his season.

Cravens injured his knee during the preseason and had knee surgery to clean up his knee and reduce swelling. He was expected back for Week 1, but that obviously didn't happen. Cravens also suffered a concussion and bicep injury during his rookie season.

Cravens is still under contract on his rookie deal, and the Redskins hold his rights to play in the league. If he returns to the team next year, he could compete for a spot on a defense that lost players to injury this year. If the Redskins decide to move on he will be released or traded. The Redskins offered their response to today's news.
