WR Ford’s season might be over

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said Thursday afternoon that there’s a “strong possibility” that wide reciever Jacoby Ford will be placed on season-ending injured reserve.
A new rule permits teams to designate one player on injured reserve for return at some point in the season. However, Allen said if Ford goes on injured reserve, it won’t be under the new designation.
Therefore, the Raiders face the prospect of playing the entire 2012 season without Ford, who is one of their most explosive receivers, as well as their kick returner.
Ford suffered a left foot injury at the end of a reception against the Arizona Cardinals on Aug. 17 in an exhibition game. He did not practice or play in a game after the injury. He underwent surgery in North Carolina on Tuesday.
Allen said Ford’s injury is the dreaded Lisfranc injury, which has been known to sideline players for lengthy periods and be difficult to rebound from.
Running back Darren McFadden said as much Wednesday, ever mindful of his bout with a similar injury last season.
For now, the Raiders have five receivers on their 53-man roster — Darrius Heyward-Bey, Denarius Moore, Derek Hagan, Juron Criner and Rod Streater.
Allen didn’t rule out the possibility of signing a free agent or promoting a receiver from the practice squad.

– In other news, middle linebacker Rolando McClain (ankle) and running back Taiwan Jones (ribs) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday. They missed practice the day before.
Criner (ankle), defensive tackle Richard Seymour (knee), center Alex Parsons (shoulder) and Moore (hamstring) also were limited.

– Allen said long-snapper Jon Condo (concussion) is “feeling better” and will accompany the Raiders to Miami. Condo will play, too, if he is cleared by team doctors.
If Condo can’t play, the Raiders are expected to sign Nick Guess from the practice squad to fill in for Condo as the long-snapper.

    I don’t expect BigMac to come out and blow Krappy away, especially on record, and will defend the scheme, although most of us in this blog and others can see that the failure of the Krappy system precedes his previous stint with the Raiders and with other teams.
    Also, I don’t expect BigMac to tell us the truth about the financial troubles that the Raiders have, thus not signing first-tier premier players, only signing second and third tier players for the one-year minimum.
    So with all of that said, it’s easy to see that BigMac doesn’t have high expectations for his first year here, and that for all intents and purposes this is a rebuilding year and a work-in-progress.

    ===============

    True, but I disagree with the last statement. Mike Haynes said during the Las Vegas party for Al this past summer that Reggie told him we should be competing for the playoffs & that if Reggie is the type of guy that if he tells you something, he believes it.

    Bob,

    I hear what you are saying that SD still had 60 yards to go for the TD. But the defense was demoralized to give them a fresh set of downs not once but twice. There is a mental aspect to those types of plays. Shoulders start to sag, body language isn’t as aggressive. It didn’t help matters when TK was taken out and left to stew on the sidelines. It destroyed a lot of positive momentum the defense was showing early on. And it seemed to put some life into Rivers eyes seeing the letdown.

    krappys offense is a mental letdown….

  • DaRaiders022

    Will be in Oaktown for the Pitts game next week! Don’t wanna go see a 0-2 team take on the Squeelers! Win the damm Miami game this week and let’s take on whoever the f**k we play damm it!!!

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Man, I sure hope the Krapp apologists and supporters are right.

    I don’t think I can take a return to having to rely on the defense to nearly pitch a shut-out in order to have a shot at winning.

    I know a boring, ineffective offense when I see one. All the rationalizing and BS in the world isn’t going to convince me my eyes are wrong.

    Krapp doesn’t have much time to get this thing turned around.

    If this offense continues to languish while the losses mount, this whole thing will unravel in a hurry.

    And if Tits Allen loses control of the locker room due to players rebelling over his hand picked OC, Knapp will not only have doomed the 2012 Raider season but also put in jeopardy the job of the guy who hired him.

    Raids better show they can score some points. Not in a few weeks. Now.

    Definitely Guest, you speak the truth, not making excuses for the guy, but the rest of the Defense and the Coaches still had no answer for what followed…I’m only mentioning this because The Riff keeps saying TK spotted them 7 points and that’s a major stretch.

    Raiders MLB Rolando McClain is “coming off what might be his best NFL game,” according to the Contra Costa Times.
    Pro Football Focus wrote that McClain “had perhaps the most dominant performance against the run of any linebacker in Week 1.” The box score of seven tackles with five unassisted doesn’t tell the whole story. McClain got off blocks, filled gaps and aligned a defense that shut down the Chargers’ ground attack.

    Sorry, Rolando. I didn’t even notice your superb performance (no sarcasm intended), I was too busy beating my head against the wall watching TK jump offsides and Goethel snap grounders to Lechler like he plays 3rd base for the A’s. Congrats Ro!

    Romac needs to show up ever game. Not just one. He did look very good last week. Now we need that consistency.

  • http://000 Bob Marley

    Players make mistakes in every game and for every team, a huge part of coaching is minimizing their impact and overcoming those mistakes, when you fail to score a TD until there’s 1 minute left and the opponent is trading yards for time, it’s a total team failure, coaches and players should be held accountable.

    Never been a fan of Knapp, but I’ll wait a few more games to judge him thus far.

    We’ll run the rock much better w/ Wiz in there.

    Raiders OC Gregg Knapp made it clear that Denarius Moore’s (hamstring) snaps would be monitored at Miami in Week 2.
    Moore will play after a second straight limited practice on Thursday, but he’s a shaky fantasy starter as more than a flex option. “You’ve got to manage him because he’s been out for so long,” Knapp said. “You try and give him a chance to win critical situations, third downs, red zone, certain first and second downs also.” Interestingly enough, GM Reggie McKenzie referred to Moore — not Darrius Heyward-Bey — as his “No. 1 guy” at receiver on Thursday.

    Dolphins rookie RB Lamar Miller is expected to be active this week with Daniel Thomas (concussion) in doubt.
    Still a liability in pass protection, Miller was a healthy scratch in the opener. While we like his long-term potential, Miller will likely split backup duties with Jorvorskie Lane and Marcus Thigpen versus the Raiders.

    It took a coaching change for him to bring hiz azz to camp in shape?

    Javon Ringer (elbow, out) revealed that he could have lost his arm had doctors not gotten his elbow infection under control.
    Ringer was lucky the Titans caught this quickly. He’s been ruled out for Week 2, but could have lost his career if they hadn’t detected the infection in his left arm sooner. Ringer’s timetable to return to action remains uncertain. Source: Jim Wyatt on Twitter

    On the D-chart, they have hanson backing up both CB positions. He could play in a pinch if someone goes down.

    If thats the case then you will be calling 9-1-1.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    Too funny, no one wanted to hear this when i said it. I told you EVERYONE IS ON A ONE YEAR TRY OUT!!!! Everyone will need to earn their spot for 2013, and it sounds as if big mck is in full rebuild mode and will cast out the hold overs that dont cut the mustard regardless of resume, hype, or contract size!!! YYYYEEEEEESSSS!!!!!

    3 guys I think on offense that need huge years or they may not stick.

    Dmac and ford, they must prove they are durable and can be relied upon, Ford may e gone for the year and may have seen his last snap as a raider. he has very little trade value, because he has not stayed healthy as a pro and he couldnt stay healthy in college either. Kick returners dont usally bring major value in trades, unless thier names are dion sanders, and eric metcalf. dmac is the same, the best in the nfl when healthy but when is that ever the case? Dmac i beleive he still has decent trade value because someone will hope they can find a way to keep him healthy, worth more of a risk than trading for a kick returner number 3-4 wr.

    Palmer is another holdover that is on the hot seat. he cooled it off some on sunday, but he isnt out of the woods by any stretch. Will palmer play the steady patient jason campbell like methodical turn over free ball he played on monday? i hope so, that was the best he has been over the last 2 years. For all the talk about how great his deep ball is it hasnt been any better than what we got in 2011, hit and miss. This so called great deep ball skill has been devalued in the new offense, and he has been far better throwing under neath.

    Palmer may have revived a little trade value on monday as well, so his stock is higher than it has been since the first time he wore a raider uniform. If he lays an egg vs the fins a team we should beat it will be a disaster, and could be the beginning of the end for him here.

    dont believe me? Well take big mck’s word for it then

    Q: Are you looking at guys, so many of them on one-year contracts, to prove themselves?

    McKenzie:There’s a constant evaluation. I’m evaluating the game and sometimes I isolate on certain one-on-one situations or stuff like that. Mostly it’s just evaluating the game. The next morning, evaluating the tape, seeing if players are coming to play.
