WR/KR Jacoby Ford back working on kick returns

Jacoby Ford spent most of his first day back working on getting back in the swing of playing wide receiver. On Thursday, he added kick return to his workload.
Ford missed the past two games with a hamstring strain. He returned the bulk of the kicks in practice today, as Nick Miller, Denarius Moore and Taiwan Jones looked on.
Toward the end, Jones returned a kick. Ford returned kicks in the regular-season opener. Miller replaced him against the Buffalo Bills. Jones handled the role against the New York Jets.
Raiders coach Hue Jackson said Wednesday that he will consider using Ford on kicks against the New England Patriots on Sunday. Jones is the logical candidate to return kicks if Jackson opts against taxing Ford in his first game back.

Free safety Michael Huff is at practice for the second straight day. That bodes well for his playing Sunday and not being bothered anymore by the concussion he suffered against the Jets.

Fullback Marcel Reece (ankle), defensive end Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder), wide receiver Louis Murphy (groin/hamstring), linebacker Ricky Brown (concussion) and cornerback Chris Johnson (hamstring) also are not at practice.
As of now, it appears a long-shot that Reece, Murphy and Johnson will be healthy enough to play Sunday. Brown won’t be cleared to practice until he passes the mandatory tests for players who suffer a concussion. Shaughnessy’s status is uncertain.

Three officials are presiding over practice once again. They have been out here for the Wednesday and Thursday practices the past three weeks on the heels of the Raiders committing 15 penalties in their first game.
Some might say the added attention is paying off. The Raiders cut down that figure to eight against the Bills and seven against the Jets.

Kicker Sebastian Janikowski was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for Septempber.
He tied the NFL record with a 63-yard field goal against the Broncos. He also had a 54-yarder off the dirt against the Jets.
Janikowski is the only player in NFL history with two field goals of 60 yards or longer. His first one came against the Cleveland Browns in 2009, when he connected from 61 yards.
In somewhat of a shocker, Moore wasn’t even considered for AFC Offensive Rookie of the Month despite two impressive games.

    Hopefully we aren’t rushing Ford back to soon. He is a special kid. The Raiders are ready to meet the challenge. We are loaded with playmakers and if we can stay relatively healthy, it is going to get real interesting….

  • RaiderRockstar

    Would Bill Belichick be considered a better HC candidate than Mike White or Joe Bugel after his Cleveland Browns HC stint?

    probably not …

    From 1991 until 1995, Belichick was the head coach of the Cleveland Browns. During his tenure in Cleveland he compiled a 36–44 record

    Jon Gruden/Tom Brady. That could have been something special.

  • morilla

    Well Viva F-in France man!

  • LA to TheBay

    Amazingly, Raiders receiver Danarius Moore was not one of the finalists.

    Cobb was named the rookie of the week for Week One, and Moore won the prize for Week Two.

    So, basically, by omitting Moore from the nominees for rookie of the month, the NFL has essentially disregarded the will of the folks who cast a vote for rookie of the week, along with common sense. Moore has been one of the most dynamic offensive players in all of football, and he should have been recognized as one of the candidates for rookie of the month.

    UPDATE 2:01 p.m. ET: We’re told that the teams nominate their players for these awards, and that the Raiders did not nominate Moore

    jmeds,

    I’m cool with Jones at KR & Moore at PR another week

    but JFORD was a stud return man while healthy last season – obviously – and return duties in 2011 have been a big disappointment

    With a team full of track stars and athletes, you’d think somebody could field a friggin kick past the 20 or return a punt further than 5 yards!

    I’ve seen Brady several times say he grew up a 9er fan so he can go eat a sh!t sandwich.

    Being from San Mateo, I was always a big Raiders fan. I honestly thought Al Davis was going to draft me in 2000, but I guess my 40 time wasn’t fast enough. At the time they had Bobby Hoying backing up Rich Gannon. He (Davis) might be the best talent scout in pro football, but he passed on me. I thought it would be cool to wear silver & black. I’m ready to prove Mr. Davis wrong by passing for 500 yards and 5 touchdowns this Sunday.

    To be fair to Al Davis (not that he deserves it), Brady wasn’t exactly a blue chip draft choice. Little too much hindsight to knock the Raiders for not taking Brady. But that still doesn’t excuse taking a kicker in the first round, his record tying (or breaking…where was the spot?) field goal kicks not withstanding. We had Nedney, who was solid, and would have been just fine throughout the Gruden era.

    Every wide receiver adds their own skill and dimension to the Raiders and that has great advantages for the Raiders. It appears most defenses play off of DHB often. DHB should really concentrate on making the catch like a possession receiver,running his routes well and often coming back to the ball so avoid interceptions, running dragging routes across the field running away from coverage,then the run after the catch will open up for him.

    Schilens is a complete beast. Man, did you see how competitive this guy is during the games. He is the Raider’s Hines Ward which often goes unnoticed.

    Ford the field stretcher. He can go any where on the field and make plays. coming underneath the offense to makes catches short crossing patterns, go routes. Ford does it all!!!
    D. moore the new phenom. The total talent!!! With the added dimension of going over the top. (Mr.Skywalkers.)

    Hagen, (Mr.Dependable) mid route ready. He is always needed to keep the chains moving.

    Can’t wait to get Murphy back either. He always has a fire burning in him and he can help also.

  • raiderkoolaid

    Every team in the league passed on Brady five times including N.E. They just got lucky. If they had know how good he would be they would have drafted him much sooner out of fear of someone else drafting him first. There was no great genious drafting him in the 6th round. Where did Johny Unites go, like the 19th round or something?

    He would have thought it was cool to be drafted by the Raiders, especially with Gruden there and someone like Gannon to study under.

    T. Jones is a playmaker too, we know what D. Moore can do. I want to see them both get a few more touches on special teams. Ford is the man though and he will get plays at WR. Hue knows how to create and takes risks. The perfect mix for this group. We are as deep as we have ever been in the last 8 years, in my opinion.

    1. What was the atmosphere at the Raiders like compared to what he expected?
    2. Has he actually talked to Al?
