Oakland drafted Conley 24th overall in hopes he could boost a secondary that struggled a year ago but he has played only two games this season.

Conley, the team's first-round pick in the 2017 draft, has battled a shin injury this season.

The Raiders were enamored with Conley's cover ability in the offseason, but he's been sidelined since Week 3 after his shin injury worsened.

The Raiders did what many had been fearing for months and shut down their first-round selection, cornerback Gareon Conley, for the year due to a shin injury Monday, per ESPN's Field Yates.

As such, this was a deliberate decision to protect a valuable asset for the future of the franchise, and not one McKenzie, Conley or the coaching staff should catch heat for.

General manager Reggie McKenzie told reporters last week the Raiders were "trying to give it some time to calm down and see if (Conley) can play". He was feeling better, then he had a setback. if he can't go, then he can't go and we're going to have to move on. He made his National Football League debut in Week 2 against the Jets and played in one more game before encountering a setback. "We'll see if we can do anything early in the week". The corner had 75 combined tackles, 13 passes defended and six interceptions in his final two years at Ohio State. Starting cornerback David Amerson missed Oakland's game in Miami with a foot injury, and TJ Carrie, Dexter McDonald and Sean Smith handled cornerback duties against the Dolphins. "He came in hitting the ground running". They start their home stretch this week when they travel to Mexico City to play a "home" game against the New England Patriots.
