Raiders coach Dennis Allen said Thursday afternoon that there’s a “strong possibility” that wide reciever Jacoby FordJacoby Ford Wide Receiver #6 5-9, 175 Royal Palm Beach, FL View Full Profile 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.
