Oakland Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (concussion, neck) has been medically cleared for contact and resumed practice Monday, reports Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times. Heyward-Bey left Week 3's game after a vicious head shot from Steelers S Ryan Mundy, but thanks to fortunate timing (the Raiders had a bye in Week 5) he may only miss one game.
Fantasy Impact: This is the best-case scenario after that scary hit. Monday was only an informal walkthrough, but coach Dennis Allen noted that DHB was "quite active". This week's official practice reports will be more instructive, but things are looking up for DHB to make his return against the Falcons Sunday. He will be a welcome return to the Raiders' anemic offense, who have badly missed his deep-threat ability.
