NFL Star Forced to Wear Glasses Following Concussion

There’s only so much hoopla we can take, especially after the furore surrounding Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 Presidential election.

Well, there is of course American Football. Considered to be the ultimate in razzmatazz, NFL football has swept the nation like Storm Angus. The glitz not to mention the glamour of NFL cheerleaders and all has seen America’s favourite sport cross the pond.

Over the last few years, fans have been witness to a number of different sporting events. Taking place at the home of football, Wembley Stadium, American football has taken over the hallowed turf in style.

More than 80,000 fans have packed in over the last few years to see games in the north west of London. This year’s pulsating match saw the Cincinnati Bengals face off against the Washington Redskins.

It was certainly a tight match with both teams unable to land the sucker victory punch. Despite both sides have numerous opportunities to win, the lead swayed to a fro during the entire game.

The Redskins looked like they were going to steal the win with less than a two and half minutes to go in an enthralling overtime period. However, kicker Dustin Hopkins field goal sailed wide and resulted in the first ever all square game in the international series event.

But, it is rookie Su’a Cravens who has grabbed the headlines in recent weeks. The Washington Redskins defender courted the column inches thanks to a spectacular revelation.

It turns out that Cravens made an announcement via Snapchat some weeks ago that saw him have to wear glasses. This was largely in part down to a concussion suffered at the beginning of the new NFL season against the Baltimore Ravens.

It seems the star has to wear a pair of glasses from now on as declared in a video clip;

“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. Fresh pair of prescription glasses on this road to recovery but I had to buy them and I’ll be wearing them for a very long time.”

Who knows whether or not this will be a career threatening condition, but all is not lost. Previous NFL stars have managed to play on wearing glasses under their regalia.

An important contributor to the Redskins recent form, Cravens has made an impact on the field of play. This included an interception when up against the New York Giants in game week three.

Craven’s weapon of choice seems to be the square framed look from his Twitter feed.  Here are a few of our favourite square framed glasses that are bound to score a touchdown!
