WR Jacoby Ford and CB Ron Bartell Both Go on IR

The Raiders today put both cornerback Ron Bartell and receiver Jacoby Ford on IR. Ford’s season is done, while Bartell could be back later in the season under the new IR rule.

Ford suffered a foot injury during the preseason, and recently had surgery on it, and will sit the rest of 2012.

Bartell broke a shoulder blade on Monday night in the loss to San Diego.

Cornerback Coye Francies was signed to fill one roster spot, and long snapper Nick Guess was elevated from the practice squad to fill the other.

    Jacoby Ford going down for the season is a crushing blow. To lose a game breaker on offense and special teams like this is to remove a whole dimension from the Raiders attack.
