03:46 PM ET 06.30 | The Oakland Raiders are "relatively optimistic" that rookie cornerback D.J. Hayden will be ready for the start of training camp, according to Len Pasquarelli of the National Football Post. Hayden suffered an abdominal injury at the end of May that has so far kept him sidelined. Hayden was hospitalized when he suffered the injury, perhaps out of precaution. At the time, it was unclear whether it was related to a life-threatening heart injury he suffered in college. Hayden tore a heart cavity last year at Houston after running into a teammate during a passing drill. Many questioned whether Hayden would be able to play in the NFL after the freak accident, despite his obvious talent.

He is already one of the luckiest people on the Earth. Had to look up his college injury.."The injury itself is most commonly seen in high-speed vehicle accidents and the fatality rate is 95% due to the massive loss of blood."
