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.

    yeah, I say over Huff too! Of course, haven’t seen Ross play, so who knows. Would still like to see Cliff Harris brought in for a work out!

    “thats a potential” – Dennis Allen on looking for a WR this week.

    Ross was just signed last week.

    There once was a time when we made these kinds of hits in the secondary. Chuck Noll hated us for it.

    Hence the reason he is learning the scheme before he plays.

    Green Bay folks had a lot of good things to say about him.

    Hot Rod Streeter!! I’m loving this guy, huge sideline catch yesterday!

    DHB is not done with football… LOL

    We havent had more than 4 WRs active on gameday as it is.

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

    dhb has now left the field on a cart with head and neck immobilized twice in one year’s time. if he’s smart, he retires. even if he wants to come back, he could be done for the year after getting knocked out cold.

    having four on gameday is one thing. having two of those four be streater and criner and counting on them, especially when moore is so fragile, is another thing. streater is contributing on his cute little 5 yard catches. but criner is not ready for prime time.

    i was completely against bringing in another guy way back when we had ford and dhb. but in a quick amount of time, another guy is now definitely needed. plax, to, and ocho are bad ideas. but gaffney is good.

  • JLofty

    Glad to hear Darrius is okay. Hope his frame of mind isn’t too damaged. Don’t want him going all Jonnie Lee Higgins on us…
    Wouldn’t be surprised to see Francies cut and a WR signed though.

  • lefty12

    DHB will be back probably after the bye.He isn’t going to retire.He loves playing the game too much.

    yes, i think one of those things they said was “ur on the practice squad”. so, i’m not really sure he’s a the answer. on the other hand how could he be worse?

    And Myers made an unbelievable grab as well! Brandon Myers is slowly turning into a pro bowl caliber player in front of our eyes.

    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

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

    yeah, lying there with triple vision and being scared to death that u may never walk again might take some of the passion for the game away. if he doesn’t want jelly for brains, perhaps he might decide to bow out. besides, i doubt very much he will be cleared any time soon. justin morneau was out of baseball for a year after getting kneed in the helmet sliding. hard to play wideout when ur off balance with headaches and can hardly stand the bright lights.

    If DHb cannot return until after the bye, I’d say no to Plax, but would consider kicking the tires on Chad Johnson. But only if it’s for sure he won’t miss time with suspension. Gaffney likely the better move. But in all honesty, lets see what can be done with Criner, and Hot Rod! TE’s are improving and really like the potential of Myers & Ausberry!

  • PurpleDrank81

    Asher Matthews says it doesnt sound like DHB is not likely to be back by week 6..Team wil prob look for another Veteran Reciever

  • lefty12

    I was reading earlier comments and there was a lot of complaining about the lack of pass rush.Ben is one of the best at moving around and giving himself more time.If he wasn’t the QB yesterday,we would have had at least 4 sacks.

    FOX & Del Rio fined for verbal abuse, so no doubt Bellicheat is going to come out of pocket!

  • R8drinOK

    Wow, what a great win for the Raiders!!! Kept fighting on Defense and Carson shut the haters up. Also 3 PENALTIES! When was the last game we had only three? On a down note, I hope Myers and DHB recover soon! Anyone here anything about Myers concussion?

  • PurpleDrank81

    Wow alot of typos there.

    Matthews says that DHB is not likely to be back by week 6

  • R8drinOK

    ^^^^ hear anything about Myers concussion?

  • PurpleDrank81

    Nothin Yet

  • dr_robert

    i will say that chad johsnon would be able to come in and have instant connection with palmer. but he’s basically washed up. gaffney isn’t a burner but he’s a good receiver.

  • dr_robert

    myers got knocked in the head while he was down. defender came in and hit him helmet to helmet but it wasn’t a huge blow. but this stuff is gonna stop. guys coming in and laying hits to guys already going down is ridiculous.

    Are you talking about the end of the game ? I thought he gave a push to one if the Refree’s who was jogging off the field

  • dr_robert

    i remember saying i thought the raiders could win 10 games as long as the injury bug didn’t hit. well, bartell, spencer, ford, dhb, barnes, myers, condo, curry. oh boy.

    Exactly.

    If we bring in a WR, its gonna be during the bye.

    I expect a WR & Pass Rusher to be singed during the bye.

  • lefty12

    Speaking of coaches getting fines,Harbaugh is no doubt in line for one also.The league sent a memo about ‘bullying’ the officials.That guy spends the whole game trying to bully them.

    belichik should be suspended if goodell wants to send out the right meassage, this bs that is getting louder and louder about the refs needs to stop right away. the refs can never be touched. period. if goodell lets it slide, then this is gonna get away from him in a hurry.

    Smith showed the other teams what happens when you head hunt us. We cut you down… wheeler almost got ben. Players will police themselves.

    I like Dennis Allen’s approach.

    Dont blame the ref’s. Dont blame the opponent.

    Press on.

    If a player did what Bellicheat did, he’d get suspended.

    If we do sign a WR this week I’d bet most of you will be upset because it most likely won’t be one of the 3 you keep talking about.No to -Chad,TO,and Plax.We don’t need some over the hill has been.

    It got away from Goodell a long time ago.
