DHB released from hospital with concussion, neck strain

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, September 24th, 2012 at 11:19 am in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders announced Monday that wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was released from Eden Medical Center after spending the night under observation.

“He is resting with a concussion and a neck strain, and expected to make a full recovery,’’ the statement said.

Heyward-Bey, 25, was injured on a helmet-to-helmet hit in the end zone by Pittsburgh defensive back Ryan Mundy during a play in which no penalty flag was thrown.

He was motionless after being hit, was strapped to a stretcher and taken off the field on a motorized card. While being driven off, Heyward-Bey was able to raise his hand and give fans a “thumbs up’’ sign.

The initial report was that Heyward-Bey had been transported to Eden Medical Center with concerns about a neck injury. Later, the Raiders said Heyward-Bey had a concussion and would be spending the night in the hospital for observation.

Coach Dennis Allen said after Oakland’s 34-31 win that Heyward-Bey was able to talk a little bit on the field.

“He was able to move his extremities so that was a good sign,’’ Allen said.

Allen meets with the media at 1 p.m. Monday.

    One thing that hasn’t been mentioned and should be is McFadden doesn’t make that long TD without DHBs blocking downfield.He did a great job
    ====================================================
    Yup….DHB can never be critiqued about his effort. He has always been an outstanding downfield blocker and hustles and fights.

    Any of my Blog Brahs catch Nob Bust’s 2nd biggest meltdown of the month? Totally classic

    Last week my minion decided to invent a Beeeech Dawg handle, only make his version extremely gay

    Then he spent a whole day getting roasted on the blog by all my Brahs who, of course, called him out and just raked the dork over the coals

    Ended up with the usual Nob results – huge flame out into an epic meltdown

    Just gotta wonder what the Goober has in store for October! Shout be dope, word up to my homey Aaron Paul and his 2nd Emmy

    Agreed, I like DHB. I like his demeanor, work ethic, and the guy is getting better each game. He’s still not making some of the top tier wideot catches, like the first long ball in the endzone, but is making hand catches more frequently then his previous seasons. Hope he gets well soon, and as someone posted previously. Hope he’s not Jonnie Lee Higgens scared from here out. I don’t think he will be!

    i’m not associated with seymour idiot.

    i’m not the gay beeech. although he’s only slightly more gay than u.

    nobody here is ur minion, whatever that would mean.

    u don’t have any blog brahs. everyone here thinks ur an idiot.

    most of the complaints about gay(er) beeeech seemed to be about him being as annoying as u are. if u don’t realize it, that means that one of u is bad enuff, we don’t need two.

    nobody knows what a flame out or meltdown means. u just keep saying it.

    of course this is all a waste of my time, as u will NEVER stop ur stupidity.

    u must lead an awfully boring life.

    Rule stipulates that an offensive lineman can chop a defender as long as the defender is engaged by the adjacent offensive lineman.

    Lefty, you are correct about Big Ben’s ability to recognize a pass rush and move just enough to avoid being hit. That is why I made my comment about “statue” Manning. If we sack him a few times, we have a good shot in Denver!

    Precisely, you can design blitzes to close on the pocket … Big Ben creates his own pocket reguarly.

    Thank God, DHB is ok.
