Redskins place Su'a Cravens on exempt/left squad list

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

Washington placed Cravens on the Exempt/Left Squad list Sunday afternoon. Cravens and the team then planned to revisit his situation at the conclusion of that month.

Cravens is listed on the Washington depth chart as the starter at strong safety.

According to the Post, Cravens told his fellow defensive backs Saturday night that he was planning to walk away. "I think I need to follow what makes me happy, get my mental right, my well-being right and my family right". The team was expected to announce roster moves, including claiming offensive lineman T.J. Clemmings off waivers from Minnesota, later Sunday. "We're here to support him", Swearinger said.

One person who played with Cravens in the past and considers him a friend said he was not surprised when he heard the news Sunday. (He also saw time at linebacker last season, as he did in college.) He injured his knee in the team's first preseason game and had surgery to fix a torn meniscus but was expected to be ready for the opener against the Eagles.

The job market saw its thirteenth straight month of growth, with August marking the quickest rate of increase since June 2014. This was above consensus forecasts of 55.0, the strongest reading for four months and the second-highest reading in 3 years.

Gruden was originally supposed to speak with reporters after practice Sunday, but that news conference was canceled and moved until Tuesday. Cravens returned to action in Week 7. After failed attempts by the coaching staff to reach him, several teammates reached out to Cravens, who informed them that he was contemplating retirement. The sophomore has battled a number of health issues dating back to college, from knee problems to concussions to a torn biceps suffered late last season.

Cravens appeared in 11 games last season with the Redskins as a rookie, making three starts. He also had some big moments and a stellar play which excited the Redskins about his potential.

Redskins officials, when forming the 53-man roster on Saturday, went with five safeties (Cravens, Swearinger, Deshazor Everett, rookie Montae Nicholson and first-year pro Stefan McClure). The 6-foot, 195-pound Texas A&M product past year converted from cornerback to safety.
