OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Oakland Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey has been taken to the hospital with a neck injury after a helmet-to-helmet hit from Steelers safety Ryan Mundy that was not penalized. Heyward-Bey was running across the end zone early in the fourth quarter Sunday to catch a pass from Carson Palmer when Mundy launched his body and lowered his helmet into Heyward-Bey's facemask. Heyward-Bey's neck jerked violently and his head also crashed into the ground. The pass was incomplete. The Oakland Coliseum crowd fell silent. Mundy and players from both sides kneeled in prayer. The home fans also started a derogatory chant at the replacement officials. Heyward-Bey's eyes were shut for the 10 minutes trainers attended to him as he lay motionless. He was strapped to a table and placed on a cart. As the cart started to leave the field, he raised his right hand to roaring cheers.
In a move that may signal Matt Jones will be held out of Sunday's game against the Bengals, the Redskins announced Friday they promoted Mack Brown from the practice squad to the active roster.
To make room for Brown, the team waived recently signed safety Josh Evans.
The NFL's preseason rushing leader has yet to play in a regular season contest, but he could get his chance in London on Sunday. If Jones is out — he experienced knee soreness at practice on Wednesday and said he had issues cutting laterally — Robert Kelley and Chris Thompson will likely share the workload in his absence, though Brown demonstrated in the exhibitions he's capable of contributing (he ran for 149 yards in Tampa Bay on September 1).
Like Jones, Brown is a University of Florida product. He's 25 years old and first entered the league in 2015.

Wearing matching team sweatsuits — as well as matching looks of weariness — the Redskins landed at Heathrow Airport on Friday around 9 a.m. local time and were greeted by eager fans looking to get a rare glimpse of their visiting favorite NFL team.
Scot McCloughan, DeSean Jackson and Chris Baker were seen striding through the jetway after the group's plane arrived. Inside of the terminal, Jay Gruden, Kirk Cousins and Josh Norman posed for selfies and signed some autographs for a handful of supporters donning Burgundy and Gold.
