Raiders' first-round pick Gareon Conley placed on IR

Share

Conley had a strong game early in the season against the New York Jets, but hurt the shin and came out of the game against Washington the following week with a limp. Unfortunately, the team's pass defense remains a work in progress and first round pick Gareon Conley, a cornerback out of Ohio State, played in only 2 games before being shut down for the season.

Conley's injury was originally classified as "shin splints" by general manager Reggie McKenzie. "He was feeling better, then he had a setback".

The Raiders, who had a bye this week, had only three healthy cornerbacks for their game against Miami last week.

In his first campaign, Conley sparsely saw the field playing in just two games recording seven total tackles and one pass deflection over that span. Oakland's opponents have a 110.5 passer rating and have completed 71.2 percent of their passes, which both rank as the third highest in National Football League history.

"There's no question we miss him", McKenzie said last week, via Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle. We felt really good about him during the offseason until he got kicked. New Orleans head coach Sean Payton says running back and special-teams player Daniel Lasco needs surgery for a bulging disk in his spine that will end his season but "won't be career-threatening". Amerson's return would help the Raiders, however much that may be, with Oakland sitting just outside the AFC playoff picture. A four-game losing streak early in the year set Oakland back and now the Raiders have little margin for error. The Raiders also reinstated defensive tackle Darius Latham from the reserve/suspended list to take Conley's spot on the active roster.

Latham, a second-year defensive lineman from IN, was suspended four games by the NFL on October 9 for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
