Gareon Conley’s time is now. He not only will make his debut Sunday for the Raiders, but he has been removed from the injury report altogether. This after missing all of camp, preseason and the season opener.
Conley was limited in practice as recently as Wednesday. He had his first full practice Thursday and after being full again Friday, he has been cleared to play.
Alternately, starting cornerback Sean Smith will be questionable for the game. He missed Thursday’s practice with a neck issue, but returned Friday and was limited.
How much playing time Conley receives is dependent upon Smith’s status.
Here is the full injury report for both the Raiders and Jets:
Though Keith McGill and Jamize Olawale returned full the past few days, they’re officially questionable for the game.
The Jets have several players out, including two tight ends Jordan Leggett and Eric Tomlinson. Offensive lineman Jonothan Harrison suffered a concussion and is also out.
