Report: “Zero truth” to Cravens saying concussion caused permanent eye damage

AP

Washington rookie linebacker Su’a Cravens claims that the concussion that kept him off the field last week has permanently damaged his vision, a claim others say simply isn’t true.

After Cravens posted a video on Instagram of him wearing a new pair of glasses, a Snapchat video including a more dire outlook.

“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,” he said in the video.

But according to J.P. Finlay of CSNMidAtlantic.com, a source close to the situation said there was “zero truth to it.”

It’s unclear where Cravens stands in the concussion protocol, or whether he was just overdramatizing things. The rookie has been a good addition to the Washington defense, with an interception and signs of being an impact player.

  1. That’s 2 years in a row….a promising rookie’s career is ended for the Redskins…

    Keyshawn Jarrett was finally the safety the Redskins had been looking for since Taylor and Landry…

    Now Cravens was that new hybrid defensive player who’s been all over the field til this BS…

    smh

  2. Generally, after sufficient cups of Jack Daniels on the rocks, my eyes lose their ability to track moving, or still, objects. Maybe that is his true problem.

  3. Typical millennial attention whoring. Certain information should not be shared. He’s gonna cost himself playing time and money.

  4. He lost his abilities track movements, but glasses are supposed to help?

    This doesn’t make sense. It’s probably a concussion symptom he has misunderstood, or the concussion talking.

  5. I did some googling and the vision thing is real. It’s concerning that the player has been muzzled. He wouldn’t just make this up if a Dr. hadn’t raised the issue. Ocular-moter dysfunction.

    67% of the neural connections within the brain are involved with some aspect of vision, whether it is visual input, visual perception, or visual integration. With so many of the connections within the brain involved with the process of vision, it is no wonder that vision problems are so common following an acquired brain injury.
