Mike Goodson Injury: Philip Wheeler Describes Helmet-To-Helmet Hit

Oakland Raiders running back Mike Goodson was taken to the hospital earlier in the day, after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from teammate linebacker Philip Wheeler. Goodson was taken off the field on a stretcher and rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, but Goodson's agent Kennard McGuire passed word to the media that Goodson is doing fine.

Wheeler, who delivered the blow, is praying that Goodson isn't seriously injured.

"I thought he was going to get up. He's not a big dude. He's kind of light. I just felt like as soon as I hit him, he fell, he was on the ground, and I didn't think he was that bad off until he said something," Wheeler told Levi Damien of Silver And Black Pride. "He said something. I forgot what he said, that he couldn't get up. That's when I knew he was pretty bad.

"I texted him already and told him that I'm praying for him, that I'm sorry and I didn't mean to do it."
