Sometimes an injury can look worse than it truly is. Or, in the case of Mike Goodson who was carted off the field today, there might not be any injury at all to fret over.
Goodson sent a scare through Raider Nation when he and Phillip Wheeler accidentally went head-to-head in practice leaving Goodson to be carted off with a perceived neck injury. Thankfully an MRI and CT scan came back negative allowing Goodson to return to the team’s hotel in Napa.
How the Raiders will handle Goodson from here out remains to be seen. If doctors allowed him to return to the team the same day he was wheeled off the field then you get the feel he’ll be good to go come tomorrow.
But that is all trivial considering how much worse this situation could have been. Perhaps nobody knows that better than Wheeler who is surely resting much better tonight knowing his teammate is back in camp.
