Washington Redskins safety/linebacker Su’a Cravens will return to football in 2018, according to a statement released by his agent on Tuesday.
“My client suffered from Post Concussion Syndrome and, under the care of Dr. Michael Collins as the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program, Su’a has undergone targeted treatment and rehabilitation. He is now asymptomatic and cleared to return back to all things football. Su’a is excited and looking forward to the 2018 NFL season and the many years to follow,” Cravens’ agent, Fadde Mikhail wrote.
Cravens, a second round pick in the 2016 draft, retired just days before the start of the regular season before changing his mind and reversing course later.
Washington held Cravens out for the entire season by placing him on the reserve/left squad list, so it is unclear if Cravens’ return to football in 2018 includes a return to the Redskins.
