DHB hospitalized with neck injury after KO

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, September 23rd, 2012 at 4:29 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was taken off on a cart after taking a blow to the head in the end zone early in the fourth quarter of the Raiders’ game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday at O.co Coliseum.

It was announced in the press box that Heyward-Bey had been knocked unconscious and was taken to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley with a neck injury.

On first-and-10 from the 16-yard line, quarterback Carson Palmer attempted to hit Heyward-Bey on a post pattern, but the wide receiver took a helmet-to-facemask hit from cornerback Ryan Mundy with the ball falling incomplete.

After the initial hit, Heyward-Bey fell to the ground hard with his helmet first _ essentially taking a second blow.

No penalty was called on the play.

More details as they become available . . .

    Paul G tweeted that Myers also has a concussion from Mundy.

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    Ya he looked sluggish after making that 3rd down catch to give us a first on one of the final 2 drives. Got hit in the helmet while going down or maybe already on the ground. 2 cheap shots and that guy will get hit hard this week.

    Now imagine if we are fully healthy???

    DHBALLIN TODAY SON! a lot of the victory was because of him.

    how do you NOT EVEN CALL THAT ZEBRAS?! two were in front and in back of the play. obviously, that isn’t important right now, but the head officials of the NFL state that it’s not risking players safety. Squeelers think they can get away with that BS now. wonderful!

    Franz isn’t MR but RaiderOne might be.

    Raidersone is NOT Mr.

    I know who he is. He’s just mad at the Davis family.

  • Twocents

    Myers took a bad hit on that play. The Steelers have always been the worst in the league for penalties. But the NFL favors them so they get away with it.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Adam Schefter is pretty smart after all, eh?

  • xraided

    Myers hurt? good night. he impressed me with some moves today. i want to see him against a better Donko secondary. so shake it off Brandon we need you!

  • VanHeathen30

    On the 3rd down conversion,
    Myers got himself off the field and saved us a timeout, VETERAN MOVE!
    That throw and catch was MONEY.

  • Just Fire Baby

    CC made a great play on the goal line when the Stealer jumped and CC moved to cause a penalty on them.

    ************************

    Yup, might have saved us some points.

    Not sure why their is so much hate for Savage, but it is what it is.

    So I guess watching the film together as a team worked because we played like a team today … What did I tell you guys ..there was nothing wrong with our O , we just needed to execute better , I told you guys our run D is fixed ,last week was fluke ,whatever u want to call it …Go Raiders plus those guys who said Raiders would no way in he’ll win this game …I told you guys anything can happen any given Sunday ..I want the real Raiders fans to point out those losers and ignore them for the rest of their blog lives

    ————-

    I’d love to get this entire blog (corky included) together to watch the film and set everyone straight.

    Man you hit it right on the head… the blog could use some nice cleaning work here and we can def get rid of some losers from here

  • Just Win Baby

    Penalties are going to go up on all teams when the reg refs come back. The new guys are missing all kinds of calls and the old guard will have something to prove. It’s gonna suck.

  • TxRaider210

    Good evening Nation! Been out of town bass fishing, but was lucky enough to see the 2nd half. Palmer and the D played when it mattered, nice win! Knapp is still not off the hook, needs to put wins after wins, the players won that game.

  • xraided

    Cooper is scrappy. loved that jump off sides to catch the defender in the neutral zone. i do commend him for his job of last year and through this year(for the most part). i sure hope Bergstrom can replace him after this year, because Coop is almost done.

  • lefty12

    the stealers were mauling our receivers all day and they complained to the league last week that CBs weren’t being called for illegal contact.Reminded me of the old days when they were cheap shot artists and C.Knoll called the Raiders criminals.HYPOCRITES.

  • TxRaider210

    Oh yeah, and Ryan Mundy can eat a dried up cat turd.

    Where’s Jerry and his Game Final Post?

    Did he get swept up in the crazy azz party going on in the Coliseum Parking Lot?

    Gotta think it’s going off right now…

    Savage will probably retire after this season, and we should all chip in and get him a rollie for the road.

    Great Raider

    TP is the only man who can change that… by learning the DE position.

  • bigsnow81

    Mike Tomlin disrespected the defense. Going for it on 4TH and 1, inside their own 50 yard line, with under 5 minutes to go. They got it to.

  • VanHeathen30

    Seems like the SCABS are afraid to pull the trigger and send a guy to the showers.
    Once they send someone off, it’ll help clean this mess up, way too much pushing and shoving going on, waiting for Someone to go ‘Ron Ron’ soon, could be tonight in B-More…

    We’ll never get rid of them.They’ll crawl out of their holes the 1st chance they get,you can bet on that.

  • bigsnow81

    This game should give the team confidence going into Denver. The defense has a long way to go. Penalties are down, it’s a bit misleading having replacement ref’s.

  • bigsnow81

    Was DHB just knocked unconscious?

  • DJ Johnny

    I’ve set alot of negative stuff on here the last 2 weeks about Knapp and DA, but i’m happy to eat a big heaping and helping of crow when it’s served like it was today..and enjoying every tasty bite.

    Where are all the Palmer haters at?
    ——————————

    Come on now. It was one game. Palmer did some good things like call the plays. The heart of the Steeler D Polamalu and Harrsion were out. Palmer would have not had that type of game with them in. Raiders would have lost.

  • bigsnow81

    I enjoy competitive games, although I enjoy W’s a lot more. I just can remember games the Raiders lost within the first five minutes. I really don’t enjoy watching other games. The only TV I watch is the Raider game each week.

  • lefty12

    DJ,you ARE one of the most negative people on here but at least you are willing to ‘eat that crow’.You are a better man than many on here.

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    Wow, offense stepped up, what’s up with the D? Gave up yards like crazy, could not pressure the qb, but came up with the turnovers…. Prayers for DHB.

  • bigsnow81

    Give credit where credit is do. Palmer just out played a 2 time Super Bowl QB and your making excuses for his good performance.

  • 8RaiderReign8

    RaidO,

    You realize we’re missing both our starting corners right?

  • lefty12

    Ignore zero.He isn’t a Raider fan.

  • bigsnow81

    Defense stepped up and forced a punt that led to a game winning FG.

  • DJ Johnny

    I know it’s early but if Palmer continues at this pace, he will throw:

    26 Td’s

    11 int’s

    and 5,000+ yards.

    #Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey is in stable condition at Eden Medical Center and will be kept overnight for observation.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Realistically, they only major issue offensively was the 2nd half of the Fins game.

    I think the offense collectively sagged their shoulders when Goethel started his Steve Sax act.

    We have moved the ball fairly well all year.

  • lefty12

    He comes here to try upset Raider fans.Hey,zero,how did your whiners do today.LMFAO

  • burn_209

    I love how people are all on Knapps nuts after one good game. He scored more points today than we did the past two games. People love to overreact on here huh

    Did anyone else notice Ian Eagles call on the game winning field goal?

    “Janikowski ‘sweeps the leg’”.

    Guess it was just me who picked up on it.
