Raiders RB Goodson leaves field on stretcher after neck injury
NAPA -- Raiders running back Mike Goodson suffered a neck injury in practice Tuesday after an apparent helmet-to-helmet collision with linebacker Philip Wheeler.
Goodson, 25, stayed down on the field for approximately 15 minutes while being attended to by trainers and paramedics. He was strapped to a backboard after having his facemask removed. Goodson was observed moving his legs before being loaded into an ambulance on a stretcher. He was taken to Queen of the Valley Medical Center in Napa.
"I texted him, told him I was going to pray for him," Wheeler said. “I don’t think it was helmet to helmet. I’ve got to look at it. It was just a bang-bang play. I’m just going to pray for him. I didn’t mean to do it. I didn’t mean to hurt him."
This sounds baaaaad. I hope that Goodson is okay. He was looking very solid in camp too. Let's hope Taiwan Jones is ready to step it up.
