Hayden’s teammates had little idea about extent of his injury

ALAMEDA – Rookie cornerback D.J. Hayden is in a local hospital as a result of an abdominal issue that surfaced last week, Raiders coach Dennis Allen said Tuesday.
Hayden is expected to miss the remainder of the Raiders offseason workouts and practices, but he should be ready to go again when training camp begins in late July.
A Raiders spokesman said Hayden was admitted to the hospital late last week and that he underwent a procedure to remove scar tissue from his abdominal region.
Allen said he isn’t sure whether there’s any correlation between Hayden’s current situation and the ruptured vein Hayden suffered last November during a practice at the University of Houston.
“We can’t rule that out, obviously, but right now I don’t know exactly what the correlation is to it,” Allen said. “But we don’t anticipate it being an issue.”
Hayden underwent surgery to repair the ruptured vena cava, which supplies blood to the heart from the lower body. He was cleared by doctors to resume football activities last month after surviving an injury that is 95 percent fatal, by some accounts.
A phone call to the doctor that performed the life-saving surgery on Hayden at Memorial Hermann Texas Trauma Institute was not returned.
Hayden participated in practice last week, when the Raiders began their organized team activities. Allen said Hayden’s symptoms surfaced soon thereafter.
“My stomach hurts so bad right now,” Hayden said via Twitter on May 20, the first day of OTA.
Safety Usama Young said he was on the field with Hayden at the start of OTA and sensed something wasn’t quite right.
“You could tell he was under the weather,” Young said. “I thought that was it; he was under the weather. … . It took me by surprise. I didn’t think he was that sick.”
Young said he has communicated with Hayden via text message and that Hayden said he is doing “a lot better.”
Linebacker Nick Roach said he didn’t even know that Hayden had been hospitalized.
Roach said he noticed Hayden with a hoodie pulled down over his head. Then again, a lot of players do that early in the morning, he added.
“I didn’t know the extent of it,” Roach said.
The Raiders selected Hayden with the 12th pick of the 2013 NFL draft. They are counting upon Hayden to crack the starting lineup at some point.
During recent interviews, Hayden said he felt good and that the only time he thinks about the injury he suffered in November is when he gets asked about it.
Allen said Hayden’s absence, combined with a calf injury to cornerback Tracy Porter, leaves the Raiders thin at cornerback and makes it all the more difficult for Hayden to succeed from the outset.
“It’s obviously not a good thing, from a football standpoint,” Allen said. “As a rookie, you need all the reps you can get and all the work you can get.”
Young said Hayden “looked the part” from what little he saw of Hayden before he was hospitalized.
“He looked pretty good,” Young said. “It looked like he was moving pretty well. He looked good, looked fast, looked quick, had good hands.”

    And snbg and duck. You can both repost all the positive crap you want, this is bad. Maybe it turns out to be nothing? Sure. But no positives can be gleaned until this guy take some snaps in an NFL game, and lives through it.
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    Yes I agree, he needs to play for real but I choose to be positive and when a real Dr. says he’ll be fine I listen to that rather than rely on none Dr’s.

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

    Real Drs said he was ready to go a month ago. He’s been in the hospital for almost a week after one day of non contact practice. Not impressed by Drs opinions so far. I wanna see it on the field.

    We passed on the best DE in the draft to get a red flag high risk player. Zeke Ansah is as healthy as a horse but he was too green for us. This is going to haunt us for the life of both players careers. I said it the day we passed on that kid I had a very sick feeling we were going to regret it for the next 10+ years.
    _______
    come on priest

    try rooting for hayden instead of rooting for your prediction to be correct

    ansah isn’t a raider. you don’t hear us saying how star will be dominating the league and we’ll regret it do you?
    ************************************
    Yeah, well I’m not rooting against him if that’s what you mean. I just hope Reggie has learned his lesson YOU NEVER draft a medical risk in the first rnd let alone top 15 that is just stupid anything can happen this is a very violent game.

    The challenge is be able to separate the issues:

    Hayden the person- everyone admires him , feels for him , respects his attitude in trying to return. Just wants him to be a healthly human being

    Hayden the football player- what a great story if this young man can rebound from almost dying to being a NFL player

    Hayden as RM first round pick – it has to work, Reggie claimed to build through the draft, he boasted about his scouting department and his success in GB. he then trades the 3rd pick overall to draft a player whose last time on the football field he almost died and went through major surgery. Many wanted an OL or DL,. Reggie surprised us all . Our team is ranked last in the NFL at DL, WR, TE, and with so many holes we need our 1st round pick to be an impact player. Any signs of this not happening can be very concerning. Yes its way to early to make any final determination. Yes, we will have to cling to hayden being there in July and not letting this set him back. We all hope for the best..its not being negative to hear a GM bank on the draft and have expectations that he will deliver. No one is making a final analysis, but there is a concern when a player with DJ hayden’s circumstance will have spent more time in the hospital then at practice. If he was our 4th round pick we would all have a different attitude. But when you draft at the position we were in there is an expectation of impact on a 4-12 that got rid of almost its entire defensive unit.

    ================================

    From what I’ve read, this is supposed to be a minor procedure and is not heart related, but whether it’s somehow related to the surgery he had, I’m not sure.

    Doesn’t appear that this should sideline him for too long. So, we’re still in optimist mode, unlike SD who lost Melvin Ingram for the year.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    why would anyone blame reggie if hayden couldnt play?

    big mack isnt a doctor, but he relies on doctors reports when scouting players, just like any other gm.

    if raider docs and other docs gave hayden a clean bill of health, that is on them if it turns out false.

    you cant blame big mack if has been victimized by bad medical reports
