The Raiders announced Monday that wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was released from Eden Medical Center after spending the night under observation.

"He'll make a full recovery -- he's going to be fine." said Raiders coach Dennis Allen, who spoke to his player Monday. "We'll just have to evaluate him and see where he's at as far as when we get him back.

"The concussion is obviously the bigger issue than anything else right now. We were all pleased to see that it wasn't anything severe as far as neck injury or anything like that."

Heyward-Bey, 25, was injured on a helmet-to-helmet hit in the end zone by Pittsburgh defensive back Ryan Mundy during a play in which no penalty flag was thrown.

"It's the game of football -- I don't think people are trying to going out there and hurt people," Allen said. "The safety was playing the game fast and physical. It's a tough game to play when you're making split-second decisions on how you play the game. It's the unfortunate things that happen in this game but we move on from it."
