ending the 2017 first-round pick’s rookie season,Gareon Conley has been placed on injured reserve by the Raiders, the team announced Monday afternoon.
 and the injury held him out of the season opener in Tennessee. Conley returned for games at home against the Jets and at Washington,Authentic Russell Wilson Jersey, however,Conley hadn’t practiced since Oct. 6 while dealing with a shin injury. Oakland took Conley 24th overall out of Ohio State in April’s draft, and the corner had seven combined tackles in those two games.
The Raiders were enamored with Conley’s cover ability in the offseason, but he’s been sidelined since Week 3 after his shin injury worsened. Both head coach Jack Del Rio and general manager Reggie McKenzie said a decision on Conley’s immediate future would be made early this week.
 and we’ll make our determination from there,Womens Mike Alstott Jersey, you wait and see if it can heal and feel better and good enough to play. He was feeling better,” McKenzie told reporters last week regarding Conley. “It’s just people’s bodies are different, when you have those type injuries,“We’ll see what’s happening after when we come back from the weekend and see if we can do anything early in the week, then he had a setback . . . if he can’t go, then he can’t go and we’re going to have to move on. But we’re going to give him every opportunity to see if he can do it.”
 which has to face Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Mexico City this weekend. Starting cornerback David Amerson missed Oakland’s game in Miami with a foot injury, and TJ Carrie,Conley’s absence is nothing new to the Raiders’ struggling secondary, Dexter McDonald and Sean Smith handled cornerback duties against the Dolphins.
 however much that may be,The Patriots have the best offense in the NFL and Oakland owns one of the worst passing defenses. Amerson’s return would help the Raiders, with Oakland sitting just outside the AFC playoff picture.
Defensive tackle Darius Latham was reinstated from a four-game suspension as a corresponding move.
Before Raiders players departed for four days to rest up for a difficult stretch run, offensive coordinator Todd Downing acknowledged the coaching staff would contemplating changes designed to pull out of a 4-5 hole.
” Downing said. “Also,“We’ll see if we need to tweak some things we’re doing schematically, it gives us an opportunity to emphasize some things we’re doing well or possibly even eliminate some stuff we’re not doing so well.
“We’re definitely looking forward to diving into that and being able to come out of the week with some hard information we can use.”
That information will be imparted on the Raiders beginning Tuesday as they begin preparations to face the New England Patriots in Mexico City on Nov. 19.
Five areas of concern as the Raiders embark on a difficult stretch drive with a stated goal of going 6-1 and getting to 10 wins:
 potentially awful weather games on Dec. 10 in Kansas City and Christmas Day in Philadelphia,That theory fails to take into account Carr’s occasional issues with accuracy, and the fact that Marshawn Lynch’s running — even when being stuffed early — had a lot to do with things that opened up in Miami for Cook and on the big play to Johnny Holton.
 ran the ball effectively when the situation dictated. And these Raiders aren’t nearly as efficient in terms of executing in the passing game.,Being a pass-first offense is fine as far as it goes. But even Rich Gannon’s 2002 Raiders, who set a club record for pass attempts, averaged 38.7 per game
Coach Jack Del Rio said increased rushing attempts were an emphasis going in to the Miami game. Score permitting, expect it to continue.
 but they remain one of the better teams in this area,The Raiders aren’t protecting Carr as well as they did a year ago, giving up 14 sacks in nine games.
 because the more the Raiders run with authority,This issue relates to the pass-run balance, the fewer times they put Carr in harm’s way.
 he’s bailing on some plays he attempted to extend a year ago and is sometimes quick to unload. Which is understandable,And while Carr is no longer on an injury report, given he missed a game with a fractured transverse process.
The bye week may help Carr in that regard, but it doesn’t change the fact that the Raiders aren’t going anywhere without him and they need to keep him upright.
 Crabtree,In the second half against Miami, Cooper and Seth Roberts all had drops (although Roberts’ was erased by penalty) in an alarmingly short period of time.
 but without browbeating the offenders. It’s the only approach that makes sense,Downing said the problem will be addressed head-on, given all the receivers have shown the ability to make tough catches.
Defensively, the Raiders would still rank near the bottom of the NFL in interceptions if they caught every throw that hit their hands. But it wouldn’t be zero.
 coaches can analyze this all they want and at this point they can’t do a lot about it. They’ve got who they’ve got. They’ll catch it or they won’t. It has to get better,Fact is, doesn’t it?
Missed tackles
This one snuck up on the Raiders in Miami. For all the defensive issues, this has been a better tackling team than at any time in the Del Rio/Norton tenure.
 but it wasn’t limited to those three.,Maybe it was the slippery turf or being over-anxious, but Jay Cutler’s 30 completions wouldn’t have meant nearly as much had the first tackler made the play. Dexter McDonald, Karl Joseph and Reggie Nelson were all offenders
 `Tackling,“I asked the guys,” Norton said. “They said, what’s the one thing you know what you’re going to get from our defense?, coach.’ And then they go out and miss the tackles.”
Rest assured Tom Brady will be looking for catch-and-run throws early and often in Mexico City. The fate of a season could ride on the Raiders being able to make one-on-one tackles.
Pass rush
 or 1.6 per game,The Raiders were last in sacks in 2016 with 25, despite the presence of Khalil Mack.
 reasoning that a healthy Mario Edwards Jr. and the draft could be an upgrade,They did little to address the problem in the offseason,Womens Ryan Kerrigan Jersey, particularly with an inside push.
Through nine games,Authentic Mike Evans Jersey, the Raiders went in to the weekend tied for 28th in sacks and are averaging 1.4 per game.
 look good in a Raiders uniform about now?,Hindsight being perfect, wouldn’t Jacksonville’s Calais Campbell, signed as a free agent from Arizona
Whether it’s from defensive linemen winning one-on-one battles or scheme drawn up by Norton,Authentic 12th Fan Jersey,Authentic Mike Alstott Jersey, Mack needs some help getting after the quarterback.
The Oakland Raiders (4-5) seemed like a lock to advance to the postseason at the start of the season, but some avoidable losses have them looking like longshots in the deep AFC. The Kansas City Chiefs (6-3) have a two-game advantage on the Raiders and by all accounts look like the clear favorite to win the AFC West.
The AFC playoff picture remains convoluted entering Sunday's Week 10 schedule. The Buffalo Bills (5-3), Houston Texans (3-5), Miami Dolphins (4-4), New York Jets (4-5),Womens Russell Wilson Jersey, Tennessee Titans (5-3), Baltimore Ravens (4-5), Los Angeles Chargers (3-5) and Denver Broncos (3-5) are all in the mix to compete with the New England Patriots (6-2), Cincinnati Bengals (3-5), Jacksonville Jaguars (5-3), Pittsburgh Steelers (6-2) and Chiefs for the six total playoff berths.  
With just the Cleveland Browns (0-8) and Indianapolis Colts (3-6) essentially shut out of the playoff race, the Raiders won't have much room for error in the final stretch of the season. 
 Philadelphia Eagles,The remaining schedule is very daunting. Oakland can't afford to lose more than two games and they will be facing the New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboys and the Chiefs. Even a 9-7 record could mean the Raiders fail to earn the wild card and almost guarantees they fail to win the division.
Meanwhile, has not been in top form this season, specific players have not been at their best. Derek Carr has not looked like the MVP candidate he once was in 2016. In losses to the Chargers, Broncos and Washington Redskins, totaling just 23 receiving yards during one three-week span., Carr failed to throw more for 171 yards. Amari Cooper, one of the league's top wide receivers in 2016
 the defense is No. 26 in average yards allowed (361.1).,Some of the blame can be pinned on an inconsistent offensive line and overall poor play from the receivers. The rushing attack has struggled, as well, despite the addition of Marshawn Lynch. Meanwhile
There may simply be too many problems for the coaching staff to fix over the next seven games.
An "enough's enough" mentality may be the consensus viewpoint around Raiders practices in recent weeks. The Raiders have looked like they can't play any worse than they have through Week 8 and there seems to be too much talent on this roster to just roll over for the second half of the season. Oakland has some momentum after their win against the Dolphins and the current bye week can only help turn things around.
There are a lot of defensive issues that plagued Oakland in the first half of the season that can quickly change in the second half. The Raiders don't have an interception all season and the defense is ranked 28th in sacks (13). Yes, the Raiders defense is flawed but it doesn't seem to be nearly as bad as the numbers indicate.
 there are also some positives. The Raiders will face the Broncos and New York Giants at home,While the schedule may look ominous, and the road game against the Chargers will feel like a home game with so many Raiders fans still in the L.A. area. It's likely that Ezekiel Elliott won't be on the Cowboys roster when they travel to Oakland.
 Giants,The Raiders currently have the ninth-best record in the AFC. Probable wins over the Broncos, Chargers and Cowboys mean the Raiders may need just one upset victory to perhaps sneak into the wild card.
 Oakland will have a good shot at overcoming their tough schedule. But there is so much room for error in the NFL,Conclusion: The Raiders face an uphill battle. If the defense can make some inroads, and a 9-7 record to gain a wild-card berth seems like a big stretch. Jack Del Rio and the rest of the coaching staff may already be looking toward the 2018 season.
Down 7-3 in the fourth quarter, the Red Raiders needed a jolt as Waianae looked to run the clock out with three minutes remaining in the game.
 the Red Raiders leaned on Nalu Emerson to make plays. With five tackles and two interceptions,On defense, Emerson just wanted to be step up for his team to give his offense a chance to get back on the field.
” Emerson said postgame. “We need to get turnovers for our offense to give them opportunities to score. As a team,“Everyday we work on ball drills and strip drills, we’re together; we’re mentally tough. We’re strong as one. It’s not an offense-defense kind of thing.”
 he’ll be the first to tell you that he doesn’t make plays on his own,As good as Emerson’s ball-tracking skills are in Kahuku’s secondary, despite what the box score may say.
” he said. “They give me my picks,“It’s nice, my rumble squad, but it’s all on my D-linemen and linebackers, they do their job and I do mine.”
When Emerson and the rest of the “rumble squad” forced the Seariders to punt with two minutes remaining the game,Womens Mike Evans Jersey, the defense passed the torch to the offense and put the game in the hands of quarterback Sol-Jay Maiava.
 a Searider defender was there looking to wrap up Maiava’s legs before he could get to the sideline.,Maiava, Authentic Jameis Winston Jersey,one of the state’s most intriguing dual-threat prospects, was finding it difficult to get going against a Waianae defensive front that wouldn’t let him breathe. On every scramble
 Maiava was knocked out of the game in the third quarter after injuring his ankle. Laying down on his back with ice wrapped around his now-bare foot,Carried off the field by his teammates, Maiava was staring into the night sky as his teammates came over to console him.
 nobody was out on the field faster than Maiava. 100 percent or not,But when opportunity knocked for the Red Raiders to win the game,Authentic Ryan Kerrigan Jersey, he wasn’t going to let his team down.
 nobody else.”,Womens Steve Largent Jersey,“This team has a lot of heart, confidence in each other. They have a trust,” Maiava said postgame. “(It’s) the bond that we have. We just grew up playing together since baby days. We play for one another
Maiava threw for 161 yards on 10-of-31 attempts. He threw an interception in the game as well, but scored the game-winning touchdown to give Kahuku the comeback victory.
 and that’s exactly what he did and we came together as a team and won.”,Authentic Steve Largent Jersey,“He was kind of struggling all night,” Emerson said. “We just made sure that (Sol-jay knew) it doesn’t matter what happened in the past, we just need you right now. We need you to dig deep
Maiava and Emerson will have to be at their best as they lead Kahuku to another state title game against the St. Louis Crusaders this Friday at Aloha Stadium. To play for a state title means a lot to Emerson, Womens 12th Fan Jersey,but playing against St. Louis makes it even more special.
