OAKLAND -- There was a scary scene during the third quarter of the Raiders' season opener against the Denver Broncos in the Coliseum.
With the Raiders leading 14-3, Broncos running back Royce Freeman took off on a long run down the right sideline. Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley attempted to drag him down from behind. Rookie safety Johnathan Abram came in to finish off the tackle, lowering his head and tagging Freeman. Once Abram hit Freeman, though, his leg swung around and hit Conley in the head, appearing to push the cornerback's head down.
The cornerback laid on the ground for several minutes before a cart was brought out.
Conley gave a thumbs up to the crowd after he was strapped to the board.
