Darrius Heyward-Bey was back at practice on Monday. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Raiders saw Darrius Heyward-Bey return to practice on Monday after suffering a concussion and neck injury against the Steelers in Week 3. There isn't any indication on his status for Week 6, but this a good sign for his chances of playing going forward.

Fantasy Impact: Fortunately the nasty hit delivered to Heyward-Bey a few weeks ago didn't sideline him for too long. Monday's practice for the Raiders won't be a telling sign of who will be playing against the falcons this weekend, but Heyward-Bey is clearly recovering well if he's already back on the field. Check on his status throughout the week to see what Oakland his in store for him this weekend.
