Raiders place rookie CB Gareon Conley on injured reserve

Raiders place rookie CB Gareon Conley on injured reserve

Latham, an undrafted free agent from IN, took the roster spot of cornerback Gareon Conley, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve Monday.

A projected top-10 pick, he fell to the Raiders at No. 24 overall after a woman said the cornerback raped her April 9 at a hotel in downtown Cleveland. He hurt his shin during minicamp in June and missed all of training camp.

Conley, the team's first-round pick in the 2017 draft, has battled a shin injury this season. He has not played since.

Conley had seven tackles and one pass break up on the 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". Sure, they saw a couple of brief appearances from the rookie against the New York Jets and Washington Redskins, but those games were more about getting him on the field and acclimated to playing in the NFL.

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. "We'll see if we can do anything early in the week".

The Patriots have the best offense in the National Football League and Oakland owns one of the worst passing defenses. 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 will face Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Mexico this Sunday.

Oakland also must make trips to first-place Kansas City and Philadelphia, as well as Los Angeles for the season finale against the Chargers as part of a hard closing schedule. The Raiders also reinstated defensive tackle Darius Latham from the reserve/suspended list to take Conley's spot on the active roster.
