WASHINGTON — Redskins linebacker Su’a Cravens revealed on Snapchat he’s permanently “lost the memory to keep track of moving objects,” and will need to wear glasses for the rest of his life.
Cravens sustained a concussion in an Oct. 2 game against the Browns which caused him to miss last Sunday’s game against the Ravens.
The Redskins’ second-round pick in 2016 missed practice all last week in the NFL’s concussion protocol and has yet to be cleared by an independent neurologist to return to practice. Cravens was expected to meet with a neurologist on Tuesday, but it’s unclear whether he’s been cleared to return.
On Tuesday, Cravens snapped himself shopping for glasses. After deciding on Gucci frames, Cravens explained, “So 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.”
“So I had to buy these glasses,” he said. “And I will be wearing them for a very long time.”
“Thanks, concussions,” he added while giving a thumbs up to the camera.
However, Cravens went on to Retweet JP Finlay of CSN Mid-Atlantic’s report, citing a source close to the situation, indicating there’s “zero truth” to the notion Cravens sustained permanent eye damage.
Although, Cravens would later undo that Twitter endorsement, as the tweet no longer appears on his feed.
