Raiders' Gareon Conley practices after being carted off field vs. Broncos

Raiders' Gareon Conley practices after being carted off field vs. Broncos

ALAMEDA -- Two days after being carted off the field Monday night in the Raiders' 24-16 win over the Denver Broncos, cornerback Gareon Conley practiced Wednesday as the Silver and Black prepare for their Week 2 matchup against the Chiefs. 

He was limited in that session, though all signs indicated him being ready to play Sunday against Kansas City. 

That's quite a turn after a scary sence at Oakland Coliseum.

Conley was injured during the third quarter of Monday night's game when teammate Johnathan Abram came flying in to finish off a tackle on Broncos running back Royce Freeman. Conley was grabbing Freeman around the waist when Abram hit Freeman and the safety's leg came down on Conley's head appearing to impact Conley's head and neck.

The Ohio State product gave a thumbs up while he was on the stretcher and tweeted out word that he was good Tuesday.

We won't know if Conley was a full participant or limited until the injury report comes out. Conley didn't have a helmet on during stretches, but he took part in position drills prior to the viewing window ending.

Raiders' Allegiant Stadium just shy of completion after blackout test

With the $2 billion Allegiant Stadium sitting at 98 percent complete, only a small amount of work remains ahead of its July 31 substantial completion date.
