Ford has been looking the bounce back from an injury-riddled 2011 campaign, in which he missed eight games. The former Clemson University star had caught two passes for 21 yards before leaving the game with the apparent ankle injury. He burst onto the scene in the NFL as a big play threat during his rookie season of 2010, averaging 18.8 yards a catch for the Raiders. He saw an increased role in the offense last season before going down to injury.
