Raiders running back Mike Goodson left practice Tuesday via ambulance, after suffering a neck injury on a helmet-to-helmet hit with linebacker Phillip Wheeler.

The Raiders have announced that the team received “encouraging news” from doctors.

“Goodson’s CT scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test were negative,” the team said in a statement released Tuesday night.  “He has returned to the team’s training-camp headquarters at the Napa Valley Marriott.”

We wish Mike a quick recovery.

    Thumbs up, Mike. You’ve been looking great in camp. Hope you get back on practive field soon. Teams just don’t have McFadden to worry about. How about Goodson, Jones, and X factor Marcel Reese. This season is going to be good.

    Very good news indeed!

    (And thanks for not speculating on his replacement. His health is FAR more important than the game.)

    I hope the mans ok LONG term.
    If it was trauma to a spine disc(s) the his problems might not show up for several months.
    Just ask P. Manning.

    Goodson tweeted that the first person he saw coming out of his MRI was Dennis Allen. Love it.

    Good news; hope he doesn’t have any long-term effects.

    How has he been doing in camp? The Panthers wanted to get rid of him because he developed a serious fumbling problem. Just curious how he’s been doing with that…

    How does anyone put thumbs down on a guy who may have a serious injury no mater what team he plays for. Some people are just plain stupid.
