Raiders' Sio Moore taken off on cart with neck injury; X-rays negative

GREEN BAY, Wisc. — Oakland Raiders linebacker Sio Moore attempted to make a tackle early in the second quarter against the Gren Bay Packers but fell motionless after suffering a neck injury.

Moore was taken off the field on a gurney, and he was seen on the television broadcast giving the Lambeau Field crowd thumbs up as he went into the locker room.

The injury appeared serious, and Moore was taken to a local hospital, but X-rays were negative and he'll travel back with the team to Oakland.

Moore, one of the Raiders' most promising defenders, hit Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on a blitz in the first quarter, forcing an incompletion in the Raiders' 31-21 loss to the Packers.
