The Oakland Raiders are currently rolling against the San Diego Chargers, but if they are going to put this game away they will have to do it without wide receiver Jacoby Ford. The Raiders speedy receiver left the game in the first quarter after injuring his foot on a 41-yard gain.
Ford was carted back to get it looked at it and there is good news and bad news. The bad news is he is on crutches in the second half, but the good news is he did not suffer a broken foot. The NFL Network is reporting it is only a sprain. That's not the best news but given the worst-case scenario, it is not the end of the world. There is no word yet on how it equates to the foot sprain that has cost Darren McFadden almost three full games.
The good news for the Raiders is that wide receiver Denarius Moore has stepped up in Ford's absence and put together a huge game with four receptions, 112 yards and two touchdowns. The Raiders currently lead 24-10.
