Last week Gareon Conley made some waves when in a tweet he mocked the idea that he had shin splints, saying he flat out did not have shin splints, and even going as far as to retweet someone who was claiming it was ‘fake news’ drummed up by the media.

The problem is that the person who said he had shin splints was Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie, who made the revelation in the same media appearance in which he said how excited he was following the grand jury decision that no charges would be filed against Conley for sexual assault allegations.
Conley clearly wasn’t aware that McKenzie, who drafted him and has stood by him throughout this ordeal, had made the statement about his injury. So, now he was inadvertently disputing his own team’s GM, and putting the Raiders in the awkward position of explaining the discrepancy.
