No timetable for Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey's return from concussion

Considering Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey @theDHB85 took a vicious helmet-to-helmet shot during Sunday's win over the Steelers and was knocked out before he hit the ground, everyone should relieved that he sustained just a concussion and a neck strain. Heyward-Bey was released from the hospital Monday and is expected to make a full recovery. But when he plays again remains a question without an answer.

Fantasy Analysis:

Head coach Dennis Allen took the high road when asked about what he thought of the hit, but the fact that this clear helmet-to-helmet shot wasn't flagged was a gross miss by the officials. Of course, that's been washed over by what happened Monday night, and it's of little consequence to the Raiders now; they still won the game, and it doesn't change that DHB is out for the foreseeable future.
With Heyward-Bey likely sidelined for a series of weeks, Denarius Moore @DenariusMoore should become an even bigger focus in the Raiders' passing game. If he stays healthy, he is a fine WR3. Rod Streater @rodstreater80 should also see more targets, but he's only a PPR reserve right now.
