Conley participated in a walk through and individual drills during Tuesday's practice, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Conley was picked in the first round of the 2017 draft, and the Raiders hoped he would help out a needy secondary, but he was only able to suit up in two games due to a lingering shin injury he suffered in June. Oakland's defense ranked 26th in the league against the pass in 2017, so Conley should have a clear path to a starting cornerback job now that he's practicing again.
Conley, who Oakland selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft, wasn't available for the team's regular-season opener due to a shin injury he sustained in June, and he only appeared in two games thereafter before aggravating the same injury. The Ohio State product ultimately finished the year on injured reserve. While his rookie year likely didn't go as smoothly as he or the Raiders had hoped, Conley should nonetheless benefit from having a full offseason unimpeded from any injury rehabilitation.

Conley (shin) was placed on injured reserve Monday.
Conley's rookie season was compromised by a mysterious shin injury he suffered in June. After missing out on the season opener, he made just two total appearances before his shin injury flared up in Week 3. Conley hasn't practiced since. The Ohio State product will now finish the season with seven tackles and one PBU, with the hope he'll fully recover in time for the start of offseason workouts in the spring.
Conley (shin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Conley hasn't played since Week 3 in Washington and there remains no clear timetable for his return. The rookie first-round pick hasn't played enough to truly show what he brings to the table or what the Raiders are missing with him on the sideline.
