Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jacoby Ford will undergo surgery on his foot and will miss signficant time, according to the Associated Press.
"It's really basically the same injury that he had last year," Raiders coach Dennis Allen said. "When he re-injured it this season there was nothing new structurally different from where it was last year.
"After visiting with the foot specialist in Carolina, everybody thought that given a little bit of time he could come back from it. After giving it some time and re-evaluating, everybody, the medical people, felt like that surgery was probably the best thing for him."
There is the possibility that Ford could be placed on the injured reserve recall list, if the Raiders believe he has a chance to come back and contribute this season.
