Raiders' first-round pick Gareon Conley placed on IR

Oakland Raiders cornerbacks passer rating allowed

Oakland drafted Conley 24th overall in hopes he could boost a secondary that struggled a year ago.

Oakland Raiders rookie cornerback Gareon Conley is still dealing with a shin injury and reportedly has been shut down for the season.

He joins Malik Hooker and Raekwon McMillan as Buckeyes who were drafted in April and suffered season-ending injuries.

LANDOVER, MD - SEPTEMBER 24: Quarterback Kirk Cousins #8 of the Washington Redskins is sacked by cornerback Gareon Conley #22 of the Oakland Raiders in the third quarter against the Oakland Raiders at FedExField on September 4, 2017 in Landover, Maryland.

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. Both head coach Jack Del Rio and general manager Reggie McKenzie said a decision on Conley's immediate future would be made early this week. He played in 14 games previous year with the Raiders, recording 17 tackles, and had played in one game this season. "Then we'll just have to move on, but we're going to give him every opportunity to see if he can do it".

His NFL debut came in Week 2. 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. They face Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Mexico City on Sunday. Amerson's return would help the Raiders, however much that may be, with Oakland sitting just outside the AFC playoff picture.

Defensive tackle Darius Latham was reinstated from a four-game suspension as a corresponding move.
