(ALAMEDA, Calif.) — Oakland Raiders receiver Jacoby Ford will undergo foot surgery on his left foot.
There is currently no time frame for how long Ford will be out.
Ford missed six games last season with an injury to the same foot.
“It’s really basically the same injury that he had last year,” Raiders head 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.”
The 25-year-old has caught 44 balls for 749 yards and three touchdowns during his two NFL seasons.
