OAKLAND -- Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was injured on a vicious helmet-to-chin hit early in the fourth quarter Sunday and was carted off the field on a stretcher.No flag was thrown on the play.Heyward-Bey was coming across the middle in the end zone with Keenan Lewis trailing when safety Ryan Munday came flying from the front and led with his helmet. It appeared as though Mundy struck him on the chin and Heyward-Bey appeared to be out before hitting the ground.He was down for more than 10 minutes. There was no movement until the cart drove off and Heyward-Bey raised his right hand and extended a thumb.
The Raiders announced he was knocked unconscious and taken to Eden Medical Center with a neck injury.
