Gareon Conley's rookie NFL season came to an early end on Monday, when the Oakland Raiders placed the former Ohio State cornerback on injured reserve.

Selected with the 24th overall pick in this year's NFL draft, Conley played in only two games this season – in which he recorded seven total tackles – due to a shin injury.

Although Conley had not played in a game since Sept. 24, the Raiders waited until Monday to place him on injured reserve in hopes that he would be healthy enough to make an impact before the end of the season.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, Conley is expected to have surgery on his shin, with his sights set on being healthy for the 2018 season.
