CB Gareon Conley Has Screw Removed from Right Ankle

Texans cornerback Gareon Conley underwent surgery to remove a screw from his right ankle according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

The procedure is said to be “minor” and McClain reports that Conley should be fully recovered by the time OTAs start this spring. The No.24-overall pick in the 2017 draft out of Ohio State by the Raiders, Conley was considered a bust in Oakland but seemed to fare better after he arrived in Houston in a midseason trade. He compiled 27 tackles in eight games for the Texans and earned solid coverage marks from Pro Football Focus.

Still only 24 years old, Conley is clearly in the Texans plans for 2020 and possibly beyond. He is set to make a very reasonable $1.89 million base salary in 2020 and the team can exercise his fifth-year option for 2021. In a secondary riddled with inconsistencies and in danger of losing No.1 corner Bradley Roby to free agency in March, Conley can be penciled in as a starter next September.

    Gareon ‘Toast’ Conley wasn’t so much a BUST in Oakland, more an underwhelming attitude….
