Gareon Conley Carted Off Field After Head Injury

Gareon Conley Carted Off Field After Head Injury

Raiders coach Jon Gruden said following the game that Conley's injury is not as serious as it looked.

Oakland Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley was carted off the field on a stretcher Monday night in a game against the Denver Broncos after suffering an apparent neck injury.

As Conley went down, though, Raiders rookie Johnathan Abram came flying in with his helmet lowered and drilled Freeman out of bounds.

The final scheduled home opener at the Coliseum before the Raiders planned move to Las Vegas next season began with derisive chants from the boisterous fans toward Brown. I'm just really happy with him. Eventually, Brown's antics and the questions about them got to be too much and he just needed cancer removed.

The inactive players for the Raiders are guard Gabe Jackson (knee), quarterback DeShone Kizer, receiver Keelan Doss, tackle David Sharpe, guard Jonathan Cooper, defensive tackle Corey Liuget and safety Dallin Leavitt. We're going to be fine without him.

They took the opening kickoff and marched 75 yards in 10 plays. Moreover, Carr was at his best when spearheading a 13-play, 95-yard drive that culminated in a 43-yard touchdown pass to Tyrell Williams.

Jacobs run for 85 yards and two scores and also had a 28-yard reception. Jacobs scored again in the fourth quarter, becoming the first Raider to run for two TDs in his debut. He caught 23 passes for 315 yards and a touchdown while appearing in every game last season.

Conley was attempting to make a tackle on Broncos running back Royce Freeman in the third quarter.

Conley gave the crowd a thumbs up while being taken off the field.
