Raiders, Darrius Heyward-Bey Get Some Good News


Darrius Heyward-Bey was able to participate in practice today for the first time since suffering that violent hit against the Pittsburgh Steelers. By all measures that is a bit of good news for the Raiders who are currently swimming in a sea of bad press.

Naturally the news is better for DHB than it is for Oakland. Hey-Bey’s health trumps anything that might be to Oakland’s benefit from a football standpoint.

Of course with Greg Knapp’s limp offense it’s not like missing DHB was something that was holding the team back. After Heyward-Bey’s breakout season in 2011 some big things were expected in 2012. We’re still waiting for Knapp to get a clue how to figure this thing out. Maybe he should just call Hue Jackson for advice.

But I digress…

The real hope is that the bye week provides DHB with enough time to fully recover, pass the league’s tests and take the field in Atlanta next week.
