Jacoby Ford exits with ankle injury

In the preseason, the football is fake.  But the injuries are real.

The first injury of note in Friday nights Raiders-Cardinals game came when Oakland receiver Jacoby Ford apparently twisted an ankle in the first quarter after a 10-yard reception.

He limped off the field.  Later, Ford headed to the locker room for closer observation.

Ford caught two passes for 21 yards before exiting.  He had returned a post-safety free kick to the Oakland 39 one play before suffering the injury.

After appearing in all 16 games as a rookie in 2010, Ford missed eight games last season due to injury.

    All man, that’s one less WR for palmer to throw to. Oh wait a minute, he’ll throw a lot of INTs, I guess that gives him plenty of weapons to throw to.

    Just what the Raiders don’t need, injuries to key players. I hope Jacoby Ford has a speedy recovery and that his ankle sprain isn’t serious. Go Raiders!
