All but one of the players on the Oakland roster fully participated in practice on Thursday. The player who didn’t fully participate didn’t practice at all, due to a neck injury that apparently was sustained on Wednesday.

Cornerback Sean Smith, who had a solid performance in Tennessee on Sunday, sat out Thursday’s practice. His absence was balanced by rookie first-rounder Gareon Conley fully participated in practice despite a shin injury that has plagued him throughout training camp and the preseason.

Conley made one preseason appearance. He didn’t play in the regular-season opener.

Also appearing on the injury list for Thursday were receiver Amari Cooper (knee), linebacker Cory James (knee), safety Keith McGill (foot), and running back Jamize Olawale (quadricep).
