    Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey went down hard with a concussion in Week 3 due to an illegal hit yet head coach Dennis Allen is "hopeful" he will return in Week 6 after Oakland's Week 5 bye. DHB was injured early in the fourth quarter of Oakland's 34-31 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The hit drew a ton of media attention, and rightly so. Another report by USA Today stated the fourth-year vet couldn't remember being hit.
