Oakland Raiders linebacker Sio Moore left Friday's game in Green Bay on a stretcher after suffering a neck injury.

The injury took place early in the second quarter when Moore attempted to make a tackle. He took a hit to his neck and back and was on the ground for several minutes before being put on a stretcher. He gave a thumbs up to the crowd while being carted off the field.

The 24-year-old was taken to a nearby hospital for further evaluation.

The Raiders also ruled out linebacker Nick Roach and cornerback Tarell Brown with head injuries.
