Oakland Raiders WR Jacoby Ford (knee) was participating in practice Tuesday, Aug. 20, for the second straight day.
Huddle Up: The Raiders are eager for the return of Ford's big-play ability -- 17 yards per catch on 44 career receptions and 4 career kick-return TDs -- with the wideout having missed all of 2012. At this time though, he only has fantasy value in deeper leagues.

Oakland Raiders WR Jacoby Ford suffered an unspecified injury during practice Sunday, July 28 and had to leave. No further details were available about Ford's status.
Huddle Up: It's a common refrain for the oft-injured Ford. We'll see if/when he gets back on the field and what that means in his battle with Denarius Moore and Rod Streater for spots in the Oakland passing game.

Oakland Raiders WR Jacoby Ford did not participate in organized team activities Monday, June 3. Ford injured his hamstring during practice last week.
Huddle Up: There's pretty much a template for Jacoby Ford news, kind of like a Mad Libs. "Jacoby Ford missed (insert event) with a (insert body part) injury". And while it would be fun to go with something like "Jacoby Ford missed Spring Break 1997 with a pinkie toe injury", if he's still missing time in training camp it won't be nearly as funny. But for now, "Jacoby Ford missed a Wham! concert with a lower lip injury" still has its charm. Go ahead, give it a try!

The Oakland Raiders likely will give WR Jacoby Ford a chance to contribute on offense this season if his foot injury has healed. The team could consider releasing him if he continues to struggle with the foot injury.
Huddle Up: The Raiders love Ford's speed and kick-return abilities, but it's hard to outrun anyone on crutches or wearing a walking boot. Foot fractures sidelined the WR for all of 2012 and half of the 2011 season, and he's going to have to show he's healthy in training camp, if not sooner.

Oakland Raiders WR Jacoby Ford said he is completely recovered from his foot injury and will be ready to participate once the team's minicamp begins.
Huddle Up: Foot fractures nixed Ford's 2012 season and all but 8 games of his 2011 campaign, leaving the wideout/return specialist with a lot of ground to make up.

Oakland Raiders WR Jacoby Ford had his DUI charges dropped stemming from his March 14 arrest.
Huddle Up: Just because the charges have been dropped doesn't mean Ford won't get a stern talking-to from the Commissioner, but lack of charges does suggest there won't be a corresponding suspension. So you'll just have to wait for Ford's inevitable injury to remove him from fantasy consideration.
