Jacoby Ford Injury Update: Raiders WR Does Not Believe Injury As Serious As Darren McFadden Injury

The Oakland Raiders have already taken a big hit to their offense with the sidelining of Darren McFadden over the past few weeks, but may be in line to lose another for a significant chunk of time. Wide receiver and kick returner Jacoby Ford is in a walking boot and using crutches to deal with an ankle Injury he suffered during the Raiders 24-17 win in San Diego this past Thursday night, though he does not feel his injury is as serious as the one suffered by Run DMC a few week ago against the Chiefs

His status for next week is still unknown though he'll have a few extra days to try and get healthy, though any loss of time with the second year player out of Clemson could be a detriment to Hue Jackson and the rest of his squad. 

Ford, 24  has 17 catches for 260 yards and one touchdown so far in 2011, but has been explosive in the kick return game for the Silver and Black. He broke a 101-yard kick return against the Browns earlier this year for a touchdown, and had three from them last season in his rookie year, including another 101 yarder.
