McKenzie stated he would see what the rookie could do during the bye week before determining his status for the rest of the season, and the team has displayed ample patience with Conley's lingering shin injury.
He joins Malik Hooker and Raekwon McMillan as Buckeyes who were drafted in April and suffered season-ending injuries.
The 22-year-old cornerback flashed his enormous talent during minicamp as well as during his two regular-season games against the Jets and Redskins in Weeks 2 and 3, building anticipation that he could be the answer to the woes in the Raiders' secondary.
The Raiders 2017 first round draft pick Gareon Conley will not play for the Raiders again this season.
"It's just people's bodies are different, when you have those type injuries, you wait and see if it can heal and feel better and good enough to play early in the season", general manager Reggie McKenzie said last week. He was feeling better, then he had a setback. if he can't go, then he can't go and we're going to have to move on. The corner had 75 combined tackles, 13 passes defended and six interceptions in his final two years at Ohio State. Oakland's opponents have a 110.5 passer rating and have completed 71.2 percent of their passes, which both rank as the third highest in National Football League history. "He came in hitting the ground running". Amerson's return would help the Raiders, however much that may be, with Oakland sitting just outside the AFC playoff picture. They face Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Mexico City on Sunday.
In a corresponding move, DT Darius Latham has been reinstated to the team's active roster.
