Susan Bauer identified the injured man as her brother, Joseph Bauer, 55. She said he was attending the game with his wife and another couple when he got into a verbal argument with a group of Raiders fans near a concession stand toward the end of the game.

Susan Bauer said her brother’s head hit the concrete after he was struck, knocking him unconscious and causing a serious head injury. She said he was in critical condition with a subdural hematoma, which causes blood to pool on the brain. Bauer said doctors had told the family he had a 30 percent chance of survival.

“My brother is in critical condition on life support over a football game,” said Susan Bauer, who also lives in Jessup. “We’re in shock over this.”

Scott Smith, 28, of Mt. Vernon, N.Y., and Andrew Nappi, 31, of Eastchester, N.Y. were both charged with first- and second-degree assault.
