Darrius Heyward-Bey Has No Hard Feeling Towards Ryan Mundy For Hit
Friday, September 28th, 2012 by Dave Bryan
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, who was knocked out of the game last Sunday by Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Mundy, said on Friday that he has no hard feelings towards Mundy for the hit, according to the Associated Press.
Despite not having any hard feelings, Heyward-Bey also has no recollection of the hit that left him with a concussion and neck strain. The Raiders receiver spoke to reporters on Friday for the first time since being carted off the field in the fourth quarter and told them that he's seen replays of the hit but otherwise does not remember it.
Heyward-Bey also told reporters that he has since exchanged text messages with Mundy while he was in the hospital and that he told the Steelers the safety that the play was simply a part of the game.
Mundy has since been fined $21,000 by the league for the hit, which he is expected to appeal. Mundy also made it clear after the game that the hit to the head was not intentional.
Heyward-Bey is listed as doubtful on the Raiders Friday injury report and is not expected to play in the Raiders Sunday game against the Denver Broncos.
