Redskins' Su'a Cravens reportedly pondering retirement at 22

RICHMOND VA- AUGUST 12 Washington Redskins helmet rest on the field during Redskins training camp

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.

Cravens, in the group message, praised each of his teammates for their skills and expressed gratitude for them and their role in his life. ESPN reported that Cravens informed a handful of teammates the prior day that he meant to notify the team of his retirement.

Redskins veteran safety DeAngelo Hall sat out training camp on the PUP list, and will remain sidelined as the regular season starts next week. He is entering the second year of a four-year, $4.4 million contract. Gruden did not address the media Sunday but will do so Tuesday. "(Cravens has) got to handle what he needs to handle, whether it's mental, whether it's family. Players said Gruden told them that Cravens was considering retirement and had some personal issues and would be away for the next month. We're here to support him. Cravens returned to action in Week 7. The Post reports that he has been discussing retirement with coaches for several weeks. If the ultra-talented Cravens does indeed retire, it would be a major blow for the Redskins. He also had some big moments and a stellar play which excited the Redskins about his potential.

"It's shocking, but it is what it is", Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger said.

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.
