Rookie CB Hayden hospitalized with abdominal injury — updated

By Steve Corkran
Tuesday, May 28th, 2013 at 12:11 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Rookie cornerback D.J. Hayden is in a local hospital as a result of an abdominal issue, 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 clear out scar tissue in his abdomen.
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.”
Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times said via Tweet that Hayden’s doctor in Houston is of the understanding that “this is not related to (the) heart issue” Hayden suffered in November.
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.
Hayden participated in practice last week, when the Raiders began their organized team activities. Allen said Hayden’s symptoms surfaced last Tuesday.
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.”

    a 27 yo second year player who still cant break the lineup despite moving him to an easier position….

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

    He ran with the first team all last week and part of today. What are you talking about?

    And what do you mean “easier position?” He was drafted as a guard, and he’s playing guard. Again: what are you talking about?

    Yea. And we aren’t the 49ers. We can’t afford to draft guys KNOWING they r gonna be on IR. We didn’t need this kid to be a stud and save this team his rookie year or anything, we r probably winning 4 to 6 games whether he plays or not. But this sniffs of season ending IR or PUP at best. Busted and/or dead before he sees a snap on the NFL at its worst. Regardless, there is no way this can be minimized or my concerns placated. This is a disaster. And I’m not bashing Reggie. Idc about that right now. And I know teams r built in the middle rounds, not at the top. But we can’t afford to miss any picks, and we have missed every number one pick for a decade now, when we have even had one.

    No, he was drafted as a guard.

    From Raiders.com last summer:

    “Raiders rookie G Tony Bergstrom spoke to the media upon arriving at the team’s Napa Valley Training Complex for the start of training camp.”

    __________________________________________________

    Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said Bergstrom will be worked at guard initially but that there’s a chance he will be used at offensive tackle at times, too.
    Bergstrom played mostly right offensive tackle in college. He worked at left guard at the Senior Bowl and said he already views himself as a guard.
    “There were some teams that I talked to that saw me as somebody who could play tackle,” Bergstrom said in a conference call with Bay Area media. “Even talking to the Raiders, they said maybe I could play tackle but I would probably move into guard first. I’m not sure. I kind of knew all along that I was going to be a guard first and maybe be able to play that backup tackle in the future, or right away. But guard’s my position. I’ve already changed my mind-set to guard. So, that’s what I’m thinking right now.”

    OL Bergstrom transcript

    Q: What is the transition to guard going to be like?
    A: “It’s something I got to do; I got to have a taste of it at the Senior Bowl. I played all right tackle through most of my college career, a little bit of left tackle, and went to the Senior Bowl and played only left guard. I’ve already had a bit of a taste for it. There’s a little growing pains, I’m sure there will be, coming into this new league and switching positions. But, it’s something that came pretty naturally to me. It was fun. I’m not going to lie to you. You get inside, it’s not so much finesse anymore, it’s a little more gritty. I feel like I’m capable of making that transition.”

    Q: Did you know all along that you would convert to guard?
    A: “Yeah, most likely. There were some teams that I talked to that saw me as somebody who could play tackle. Even talking to the Raiders, they said maybe I could play tackle but I would probably move into guard first. I’m not sure. I kind of knew all along that I was going to be a guard first and maybe be able to play that backup tackle in the future, or right away. But guard’s my position. I’ve already changed my mind-set to guard. So, that’s what I’m thinking right now.”

    I get that. And if he was on any other team my perspective would be different. Obviously his health is more important than if he ever plays and snap in the NFL. I just wish it was another team that had to deal with it. We have enough problems. So I can’t help but put playing from our number one pick as a very high priority. But of course, life is the number one priority. I get that even in all my angst.

    First, find a real dr that has seen someone survive his injury. Have to go to war vets most likely, since the battlefield is where this injury happens most often as I understand it. Gonna be tough to find that guy. When you do, ask him of any of his surviving patients ever went on to play in the NFL 4 months after it happened? Good luck. Keep me posted.

    I feel your pain. Honestly, it’s not that bad. Hayden most likely will make camp. If Bergs doesn’t work out it won’t be the first time a high pick didn’t make it. I think he will. I think this is a stop gap year for QB’s anyway and we’ll draft one next year.

    Doctor signing in here. I am an A&E doc’ but you’d call it ER. Hayden’s past injury is not normally seen on the sports field. It’s usually a road traffic accident type of injury. I have seen a few bikers killed with the injury he received on the football field. I doubt his present issue is related directly to it. He’ll be playing ball for us this season.
    Go Hayden, Go Raiders!
