Update: Good news all around.
Good news from Raiders: Mike Goodson’s CT scan and MRI test were negative. He has returned to the team’s training-camp headquarters.— Tim Kawakami (@timkawakami) August 8, 2012
Running back Mike Goodson had a nasty helmet-to-helmet collision with linebacker Philip Wheeler. Goodson was removed from practice on a stretcher and taken to a nearby hospital by an ambulance as a precaution.
Goodson's agent Kennard McGuire said that his client is doing fine, easing fears in what was a very scary situation.
"I commend the Raiders for responding in the manner in which they did," McGuire wrote in a text message. "Mike is alert and moving his extremities. The team and Mike are taking the proper precautions."
Assuming McGuire isn't jumping the gun this is excellent news. Although it remains to be seen how much time Goodson will miss with a supposed neck injury, it would appear that he missed out on any serious damage.
The Raiders traded offensive lineman Bruce Campbell to the Carolina Panthers for Goodson in the offseason.
