Report: 'Zero truth' to Su'a Cravens's claim concussion permanently impaired vision

Wednesday October 12th, 2016

Washington Redskins rookie linebacker Su'a Cravens posted a Snapchat story on Tuesday in which he says the concussion he sustained during Week 4 permanently damaged his vision, but CSN Mid-Atlantic reports a source said there is "zero truth" to that claim. 

"Due to my concussion, my eyes have lost the memory to keep track of moving objects, so I have to wear these for the rest of my life," Cravens said in the video, according to ESPN.

Cravens also posted an Instagram on Tuesday, pointing out his new glasses.

"The road to recovery starts off with a fresh pair of prescription glasses I have to wear from now on... Sounds great! #httr," Cravens wrote.


Cravens sustained the concussion on a hit during the Redskins' 31–20 win over the Browns in Week 4. He is still in the concussion protocol, but was scheduled to be evaluated by a doctor on Tuesday. The coaches were expected to know more about his status for this Sunday's game against the Eagles after the evaluation. 

The Redskins (3–2) will host their NFC East foe at FedExField on Sunday.
