Early in the first quarter, Ford hauled in a deep pass from Carson Palmer. Just moments after, he sprained his left foot and immediately had to be helped off the field. The wide receiver was carted into the locker room and has not returned since suffering the injury. We have a video of the scary play:
This is obviously a tough blow for Oakland. Darren McFadden suffered a similar injury three weeks ago and has still not recovered or seen any time on the field. In Ford's absence, Denarius Moore has stepped up big time and Carson Palmer continues to work the ball down the field through the air, but it could cause problems in the coming weeks as defenses have time to prepare.
