Conley (foot) is active for Thursday's game against the 49ers, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Conley appears to have fully recovered from a lingering foot injury and will draw the start at right cornerback against the 49ers on Thursday. The 2017 first-round pick will suit up in opposition of quarterback Nick Mullens, who draw his first career start in place of C.J. Beathard (wrist).

Conley was phased out of the defensive gameplan early Sunday, just one week after returning an interception for a touchdown against the Browns. Head coach Jon Gruden claimed the 23-year-old experienced struggles against a potent Chargers offense, benching the 2017 first-rounder in favor of Daryl Worley during his first game back from suspension. It's unclear at this point if Conley will retain his role as a starter Week 6 against Seattle.

Conley is expected to participate in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
After missing part of June's minicamp with a groin strain, Conley then strained a hip in his first day of team drills during training camp, and the defensive back had been out of commission for roughly two weeks before returning Monday. Conley's taken part in each of Oakland's last three practices, though, and the 2017 first-rounder is now back on track to play a key role in an underwhelming Raiders secondary this season.
