Raiders CB Gareon Conley (shin splints) is a full participant in OTAs.
"Conley is special," coach Jon Gruden said afterward. "He was a top pick in the draft for a reason." Conley's rookie season was a complete wash, with his troublesome shin limiting him to two appearances. One month shy of his 23rd birthday, Conley will be given the opportunity to be a difference-making sophomore. The Raiders cut Sean Smith before letting T.J. Carrie walk in free agency.

TMZ reports Raiders CB Gareon Conley is being sued by the woman who accused him of sexual assault last year.

The woman accused Conley of raping her at a hotel in Ohio last April. Conley was never arrested or charged with a crime and adamantly denies he did anything wrong. The woman claims she "sustained serious physical, psychological, emotional and mental injuries" as a result of the alleged incident.

Coach Jon Gruden expects second-year CB Gareon Conley (shin splints) to be ready for OTAs.

Last year's No. 24 overall pick, Conley played just 92 snaps across two games as a rookie. Nobody needs the reps more than him. The Raiders are counting on Conley to step up and be a starter in 2018 as they perform a makeover at the position. Oakland will reportedly go hard after free agent Trumaine Johnson in two weeks. The Raiders are expected to cut CB Sean Smith.

Raiders CB Gareon Conley (shin splints, injured reserve) is undergoing surgery on Monday.

Conley's shin issue had been lingering since June until the Raiders shut him down a week ago. It's unclear what the exact nature of his operation is. He should be considered questionable for the start of the Raiders' offseason program.

Raiders placed CB Gareon Conley (shin) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Conley showed up to Raiders camp in the spring with a shin injury and never got over it. He did hold his own in Weeks 2-3 appearances, then suffered a setback. The 24th overall pick in April's draft, Conley should still have a bright future if he can overcome the injury bug. He bookended Marshon Lattimore at Ohio State and at times impressed even more than Lattimore on college tape.

Raiders CB Gareon Conley (shin) is out for Week 7 against the Chiefs.

Conley visited a doctor on Tuesday and had almost no chance of suiting up on a short week. Marshall Newhouse has also been ruled out for Thursday night while linebackers Corey James (knee), Marquel Lee (ankle) and Nicholas Morrow (ankle) are all listed as questionable.
Wed, Oct 18, 2017 04:34:00 PM

Raiders declared CB Gareon Conley, QB Connor Cook, LB Marquel Lee, FB Jamize Olawale, OT David Sharpe, DL Jihad Ward and OT Jylan Ware inactive for Week 6 against the Chargers.

Raiders CB Gareon Conley (shin) will visit a doctor on Tuesday.

Conley has been battling shin splints all year without much improvement. Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, he could be sidelined for "weeks." With David Amerson (shoulder) banged up and Sean Smith playing poorly (PFF's No. 75 coverage grade out of 109 cornerbacks), Oakland's secondary is a mess right now.
Sun, Oct 15, 2017 10:53:00 AM

Raiders CB Gareon Conley (shin) is questionable for Week 4 against the Broncos.

Conley returned to a limited practice on Thursday after getting the day off on Wednesday and should be ready to roll against the Broncos in Week 4. He's looked good in the early going, earning PFF's No. 30 grade out of 111 qualifiers at cornerback this season.
Fri, Sep 29, 2017 03:41:00 PM

Raiders CB Gareon Conley (shin) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Conley sat out the season opener with a shin injury but returned a week later. It's unclear if he suffered a setback or if the Raiders are just giving him a breather after traveling cross-country to play the Redskins in primetime last week. His absence would open up more snaps for Sean Smith.
Wed, Sep 27, 2017 07:06:00 PM

Raiders CB Gareon Conley (shin) was taken off the team's final injury report for Week 2 against the Jets.

The first-round rookie will make his NFL debut this week after sitting out Week 1 with a shin injury. He could see extended action if Sean Smith (neck) can't go on Sunday.
Fri, Sep 15, 2017 03:41:00 PM

Raiders declared CB Gareon Conley (shin) inactive for Week 1 against the Titans.

With fellow DB Obi Melifonwu on injured reserve, the Raiders' thin defense is missing its top two draft picks. Expect the Titans to test Sean Smith. Conley is week to week. Also inactive for the Raiders are QB Connor Cook, G/T Denver Kirkland, DT Darius Latham, S Keith McGill II, FB Jamize Olawale and OT David Sharpe.

Raiders CB Gareon Conley (shin) is questionable for Week 1 against the Titans.

Beat writer Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area think it's unlikely Conley will suit up for the opener after missing most of camp with a shin injury. The first-round rookie was limited at all three practices this week.
Fri, Sep 8, 2017 03:37:00 PM

Raiders activated CB Gareon Conley (shin) from the active/PUP list.

He's immediately returned to practice. Conley hadn't practiced since minicamp. His conditioning could be an issue for Week 1, but he now has 12 days to get up to speed.
Tue, Aug 29, 2017 02:29:00 PM

Raiders first-round CB Gareon Conley (shin) is expected to be ready for Week 1.

Conley is expected to practice "soon." This is the final week of summer, so there's not much time left. A player who hasn't practiced since minicamp is going to be hard pressed to provide meaningful snaps against the Titans on Sept. 10.
