ALAMEDA -- Rookie cornerback D.J. Hayden has been released from Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley and "resting comfortably at home" in the Bay Area, according to a Raiders spokesman.
The team announced Tuesday that its No. 12 pick out of Houston had been recovering at a local hospital after undergoing surgery to remove abdominal scar tissue. Hayden reported discomfort during Oakland's first organized team activity last week.
Hayden, whose draft stock soared despite his miraculous recovery from a near-death heart vein rupture at the University of Houston last fall, will be unavailable at least until training camp at the end of July.
