Wasn't he out for even longer than that? And surely you pick your best players regardless of moral righteousness? As long as they're fit enough, of course.

Calabria has been quietly one of our best performers this season, while Conti is coming back from 2 knee ligament tears

Conti is a tremendous talent going forward, but his defensive game worries me. He might just still be rusty but Calabria imo is by far the more solid RB plus he makes excellent runs as well

Conti is the better crosser and creative outlet for sure, but the things above are being taken into account by Rino.

Add to that, the entire club is hesitant to push Conti too far too quick as his knee could easily give out again, which would be devastating for him. The Empoli game was the first 90 minutes Rino gave him as it was always going to be a relatively easy game, but he won't be playing him in a high pressure game any time soon

Interesting. Plain dumped?

Nah, rested and it was a prime game to give Conti some good minutes considering it was Empoli
