Cravens (personal) is expected to rejoin the Redskins as soon as Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Citing a desire to make his personal life more of a priority, Cravens surprisingly announced earlier in September that he would step away from the game and consider retirement, prompting the Redskins to place him on the NFL's exempt/left squad list. The organization planned to give the safety four weeks to decide his future in the NFL, and it appears he's since come around to the idea of playing again. The 22-year-old's agent has been in touch with coach Jay Gruden during the safety's hiatus, and Cravens was spotted with Redskins Senior Vice President of Player Personnel Doug Williams on Saturday, further indicating that a reunion could be imminent. If Cravens does in fact resume practicing with the Redskins this week, it's not clear if he would immediately suit up for the Sept. 24 matchup with the Raiders or if the team would give him additional time to prepare for a return to game action.
