(106.7 The Fan) -- Former Washington Redskins safety Su'a Cravens accused the team of mishandling injuries and withholding information in a series of tweets Monday.

"2 years later and I’m still fighting the Skins on something they’ve continued to do countless (times)," Cravens wrote at the start of a five-tweet thread about his former team.

Cravens tied his experience with the organization to current Redskins offensive tackle Trent Williams' holdout. "Which is why the best tackle in the game refuses to play for them now. Same reason I left. Mishandled injuries and withheld info. All evidence points to them being guilty!" he tweeted.

Cravens, a second-round draft pick in 2016, played 11 games during his rookie season before missing the final three games with an injury. He left the team in Sept. 2017 under mysterious circumstances after a shoulder injury nearly had the promising 22-year-old safety ready to retire from football before his second season.

Washington placed Cravens on the reserve/left squad list two weeks after he announced his intention to retire before he was reinstated by the NFL in Feb. 2018 after being medically cleared from post-concussion syndrome. The Redskins dealt Cravens to Denver in March 2018.

Before training camp, Jason La Canfora reported Williams had lost trust with the Redskins organization when he felt the team mishandled a medical situation of his and "trust has been broken with the front office and with the medical team."
