Gareon Conley Expected To Play In Raiders Season Opener

The mysterious leg injury that has hobbled Gareon Conley since June has caused many to wonder if the Raiders first-round pick will be ready in time for the season opener.

As of now, it appears Conley is on track to be back. According to NFL Networks’s Ian Rapoport, Conley is expected to practice soon and the team believes he’ll be ready for week one in Tennessee.

Without playing a down in training camp or preseason, Conley has already been categorized by Raiders play-by-play voice, Greg Papa, as the best cornerback on the Raiders roster by far – a statement that based on preseason may not be saying a lot.

With the inconsistent play of Sean Smith and David Amerson in concussion protocol (the result of a collision during Saturday’s game), Conley’s impending return will come as a welcome relief to coaches and fans alike.

  1. Scheme, communication, assignments, etc the much bigger picture problem for Oakland. Norton and apparently Pagano can’t get this done, need replacing.

  2. Being on the PUP list for sore shins? SO how did this happen? He hasn’t practices so whats the deal? Why can’t the Raiders be up front about his injury? Seems to me to be a lot nonsense!
