The Oakland Raiders received a scare today when wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was knocked unconscious during the team's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Heyward-Bey was hit by Steelers' safety Ryan Mundy in the end zone helmet-to-helmet.  Heyward-Bey lay motionless for a few moments before eventually being carted off the field.  He gave a thumbs up to the crowd while strapped to the cart.

According to Pittsburgh Tribune-Review sports columnist Dejan Kovacevic, Heyward-Bey is stable and the injury does not appear to be as serious as it looked on the field.
Good news: Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey in stable condition at hospital, will stay overnight. Doesn’t sound too serious. Was knocked out.

Heyward-Bey has seven receptions this season for 84 yards.  He had a break-out season last year for the Raiders when he caught 64 balls for 975 yards.  Heyward-Bey was drafted seventh overall by the Raiders in 2009.  He has 1,549 career yard with Oakland.

The Raiders went on to beat the Steelers 34-31.  Heyward-Bey's status for next week's game against the Denver Broncos in Denver.  The Raiders will be looking to pull to 2-2 in the AFC West.  They trail the San Diego Chargers who are 2-1 on the season.
