CB - HOU
CB Gareon Conley has been placed on the PUP by the Houston Texans. Conley underwent offseason ankle surgery.
Conley can be removed from the PUP at any time prior to the start of the regular season. If he’s not ready to roll, he’ll remain on the PUP through Week 6. The Texans hope to have their best lockdown corner available come Week 1.
The Houston Texans will not pick up the fifth-year option on CB Gareon Conley’s rookie contract.
Conley was traded to the Texans during the 2019 season after spending 2.5 seasons with the Raiders. The former first-round pick out of Ohio State has underwhelmed in his three-year career, totaling 94 tackles and four interceptions. He’ll become a free agent after the upcoming season, and maybe that lights a fire within him to perform at a higher level.
Gareon Conley has been traded to the Houston Texans in exchange for a 3rd round pick.
The Texans have been in dire need for secondary help, as their pass defense just allowed Jacoby Brissett to be the fourth QB this season to have a 300 yard, multi-touchdown performance. Perhaps a change of scenery will benefit the 2017 first-round pick, who clearly did not do enough for a Raiders team that already has their own defensive woes and just got shredded by Aaron Rodgers.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Raiders CB Gareon Conley (neck) is slated to play in Week 2.
Conley was carted off the field last week after suffering a neck injury but appears to have averted disaster. While he could be on a snap count against the Chiefs, his presence will bolster a suspect Raiders secondary who will be sans rookie standout Jonathan Abrams, who landed on IR with a shoulder injury.
The Raiders have listed cornerback Gareon Conley (foot) as questionable for Thursday night’s game against the 49ers.
Conley was a limited participant Tuesday and Wednesday. With Daryl Worley also questionable, the Raiders are thin at the cornerback position after Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie retired at the beginning of the week.
