You knew this was coming. Former Redskins 2nd round pick DB/LB Su'a Cravens has sounded off on the Redskins for their reported handling of Trent Williams' medical scare. Cravens also had multiple issues with the Redskins and their training/medical staff when he was here.
He famously went on social media and claimed he would need to wear glasses for the rest of his life due to concussions suffered while playing. This was dismissed quickly by Jay Gruden and the Redskins. He also sought treatment at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center while away from the team for lingering effects from a concussion suffered in his rookie season.
The team questioned Cravens injuries his rookie year when he suffered a bicep injury. They felt he wasn't playing through it, and he did not play in the season finale against the Giants. The Redskins lost that game, and their shot at the playoffs.
Cravens left the team in 2017 after final roster cuts, and was going to retire. The team supposedly talked him out of retirement, but then put him on the Exempt/Left Squad List. He was reinstated the following February, and traded to the Broncos in March, ending their rocky relationship.
Cravens claims he is still fighting the Redskins for payments owed, and he understands what Trent Williams is going through. Williams has reportedly said he will not play for the team anymore, and wants to be traded after they mishandled the diagnosis for the growth on his head that turned out to be pre-cancerous. The Redskins have leaked that made appointments for Williams that he didn't keep.
This is only going to get uglier...
2 years later and I’m still fighting the Skins on something they’ve continued to do countless time . Which is why the best tackle in the game refuses to play for them now. Same reason I left. Mishandled injuries and withheld info. All evidence points to them being guilty!— Va-Cay (@iammsuzy) August 12, 2019
I will continue to fight this case and as the Skins continue to call countless irrelevant witnesses to buy time and hopefully wait me out from their due fate . I will not settle no matter how much the Skins drag their feet on this . They know they’re guilty!— Va-Cay (@iammsuzy) August 12, 2019
During the time I was put on the exempt list the Skins went out of their way to cut my insurance off, froze my payments, refuse to pay me and even recoup pay. All for a very real injury that THEY decided was made up. Which is why people fear being hurt in the league.— Va-Cay (@iammsuzy) August 12, 2019
I will not be intimated nor will this go away anytime soon Skins. The evidence in court shows your guilty actions. The lies and mixed stories your witness provided have all been proven false . Use the CBA rules to your advantage all you want I will still win ! You will not!— Va-Cay (@iammsuzy) August 12, 2019
2 years and no interest added to what I’m rightfully due and no timetable as to when the Skins will be forced to pay me what they owe. I’m willing to fight until the end. I thank the players who have experienced this with this team first hand that have called them on it!— Va-Cay (@iammsuzy) August 12, 2019
