Washington Redskins safety Su'a Cravens is expected to be ready for the season opener despite being slated to undergo a meniscus trim, multiple outlets reported on Tuesday.
Cravens injured his knee during the preseason opener against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday.
The 22-year-old has worked as a starter throughout training camp, although he spent his first NFL season at linebacker in 2016.
Cravens, a second-round selection, recorded 33 tackles and one interception last season.
Deshazor Everett, who switched from cornerback to safety during the 2016 offseason, is expected to see additional time in the absence of Cravens.
