Early in the fourth quarter of the Raiders-Vikings game, Darrius Heyward-Bey caught a pass across the middle of the field, and while Cedric Griffin tackled him, E.J. Henderson’s knee caught Heyward-Bey in the head and knocked off his helmet.
While the play looked serious and awfully scary, Raiders coach Hue Jackson said Heyward-Bey had full use of extremities. Jackson also said he was optimistic that Heyward-Bey would travel home with his teammates tonight.
Heyward-Bey led the team with four catches for 43 yards in Oakland's win, and as he was stretchered off the field, his raised his left hand to the sky, much to the relief of everybody watching.
