Raiders WR Jacoby Ford is out of his walking boot and healing from an injury to his left foot suffered in the Aug. 17 preseason game against Arizona, but the recovery cannot happen soon enough for QB Carson Palmer.
The Raiders' signal caller needs more reps with his two injured receivers, Ford and Denarius Moore, according to Paul Gutierrez of CSNBayArea.com.
"We need a ton of work together," Palmer said. "You can never get enough work with a guy, even if he’s played every rep and you’ve played every rep, you always need those reps. When they’re back, it’s not easy to get off the couch or get out of a walking boot or off crutches or whatever it may be and just show up and play."
Moore has been out since Aug. 4. He caught 33 passes for 618 yards and five touchdowns last season. Ford caught 19 passes for 279 yards in just eight games in 2011.
