WR Ford suffers broken hand (updated)

Raiders coach Hue Jackson just revealed to the media in his Sunday news conference that second-year wide receiver Jacoby Ford suffered a broken left hand and could be out a couple of weeks.

The Raiders are counting upon Ford to be one of their primary playmakers this season on the heels of his stellar rookie season last season.

Ford appeared to hurt his hand during practice Saturday. He was spotted with his left hand wrapped afterward but did not speak with the media.

“He broke his left hand and (it’s) unfortunate,” Jackson said. ”Everybody’s looking, going, ‘Oh gosh, here we go.’ Jacoby Ford will be fine, O.K. And, again, those are the things that happen. But he’s good. He’ll be back. I feel very good about it. He’s good, his spirits are good and we’ll be rolling soon.”

Ford’s absence gives younger receivers more of an opportunity to press their case for inclusion on the 53-man roster.

Broke free from the player interviews to deliver this news. Headed back down to conduct some player interviews. I shall be back at you in awhile.

    I like the way Hue is running camp. Doesn’t seem to be to much fkn around being nice. A bit of a difference from Cable.

    Meyers can’t catch. Losing Miller would be huge and bigger loss than #21.

    I know its only a couple of weeks but man…Well this will give the ord a shot to look at the other WR’s on the team…No reason to panic…

    While they await a decision and await getting a deal with A. Cromartie, the Jets worked out CB Phillip Buchanon of the Redskins

    I will be at the game for Monday Night Football! I live in Denver and go to the Raider game every year. My wife is a Donkey fan, and of course I’m a Raider fan. Last year she left at half-time of the wonderful 59-14 beat down. Here’s to hoping she ends up leaving early again! ;)

    I’m not a fan of the Oklahoma drill. I know it’s old school but nothing good comes out of it imo. Art Shell ran it too.

    Hue is bascially building a tougher team. That much is apparent. He is building B’More of the West except with a much more potent offense.

    Wow!

    Well, like most GMs (judging by the lack of offers from ANY team), I’ll have to disagree. Pass catching TEs are a dime a dozen.

    More importantly, doesn’t everyone want to see our WRs lead the team in catches? Wouldn’t you like to see a guy like Ford running the underneath routes instead of a TE?

    I’d rather have a TE who can block, and give Miller’s touches to DMac and Reece outta the backfield, or a WR running underneath routes.

    If it’s truly a 2 or 3 week injury this isn’t a huge deal. Season’s still 6 weeks away

    ——————————————————

    I disagree, but just a bit.

    Takes time away from Glo and Ford continuing to build their chemistry.

  • J Hill

    Grad is actively trying to get him to Cinci.

    I hope Miller thinks as highly of Gardowski as some of the posters on here do.

    We can use that $ to sign a WR and some more OL depth.
