Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey still cannot remember the vicious hit from Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Mundy that knocked him unconscious during the Week 3 34-31 win against the Steelers.

When asked about the play by news reporters in his first media session since the incident he said, "I don't remember any of it." He went on to say that despite having seen television replays of it, that he still can't recall the blow that appeared to knock him out immediately upon impact and send him to the hospital overnight.

He was hit square in the chin by Mundy's helmet as he attempted to catch a would-be touchdown from quarterback Carson Palmer. The game was stopped for several minutes as Heyward-Bey was on the ground, surrounded by medical staff, and lay motionless as onlookers were left to fear the worst.

Head coach Dennis Allen said that he has not passed all of the post-concussion tests required to participate in contact drills. He has not practiced since the injury and is listed as doubtful to play in the game vs. the Broncos.
