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.
