Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow left Thursday night's game against the Chargers early after a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit on a punt return. He was knocked out cold by the hit and was left awkwardly laying on his head.
Renfrow would eventually get up with the help of his teammates and walk off the field under his own power. But he wouldn't return to the game.

Somehow this unnecessary shot to the head wasn't flagged. Shit happens sometimes, but this hit was completely avoidable.
The Raiders would lose the game in overtime after failing to reach the end zone on their only possession. The loss makes a playoff run for Las Vegas extremely difficult.
Renfrow will find out about the loss over the weekend when his brain finally comes back online.
