Raiders HC Jon Gruden said after Monday’s win over the Broncos that he has received word that Gareon Conley is “going to be ok,” per Vic Tafur.
Raiders CB Gareon Conley suffered an injury during the third quarter of Monday night’s game and was taken off the field on a stretcher.
Conley was attempting to make a tackle when his teammate’s leg inadvertently hit him in the head.
The Raiders have already ruled him out with a neck injury.
The good news is that Conley was able to give a thumbs-up as he was taken off the field.
Conley, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Raiders back in 2017. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $10.46 million contract and set to make a base salary of $1.41 million for the 2019 season.
Conley’s contract includes a fifth-year option for the Raiders to pick up in 2020.
In 2018, Conley appeared in 15 games and recorded 37 tackles, three interceptions, one defensive touchdown and 15 pass defenses.
