Gareon Conley suffered a scary injury on Monday night, but seems to be okay.
The former Buckeye cornerback left Monday night's season opener on a stretcher after a teammate's lower body violently collided with his head on the sideline. But according to Conley, it was totally precautionary and he is "good to go."

Im good to go God Bless you all— Gareon Conley (@_gconley8) September 10, 2019
There's been no official update on Conley's status for the Raiders' upcoming game against the Chiefs on Sunday, but the important news is that he does not appear to have suffered a major injury.
Conley also gave an uplifting thumbs up as he was carted off the field, and was joined by former Ohio State teammate and current Denver Bronco Jeff Heuerman who offered his support.
