Oakland police officer Kevin McDonald said the man fell from the third deck on to the concrete of the lower concourse at about 5:30 p.m., shortly after kickoff. McDonald said initial reports called the fall an accident, but it remains under investigation.

McDonald said the man was at a hospital and listed in serious condition, but he didn't have any further information on the man's injuries or identity.

The Raiders, who lost to the Broncos 26-13, issued a statement saying they didn't have any information beyond what authorities are releasing, but their thoughts and prayers are with the man and his family and friends.
