Dennis Allen said WR Jacoby Ford’s injured left foot didn’t "respond like everybody was kind of hoping it would" to rest and rehabilitation.— Raiders RapidReports (@CBSRaiders) September 11, 2012
During Monday's game against the San Diego Chargers, a 22-14 loss, Ford was not on the sideline. Now, it turns out he was in North Carolina undergoing some sort of surgery.
Entering his third season in the NFL, Ford injured his left foot in the second preseason game of the year against the Arizona Cardinals. An MRI revealed nothing further afterward, and he was apparently making progress in the past few weeks, even jogging around at some practices.
The exact injury to Ford's foot was never given.
