Jacoby Ford has shed his walking boot, and is ready to "crank up his rehab" for the Oakland Raiders, according to Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times. Ford has missed the entire 2012 season due to a Lisfranc injury suffered in training camp.
There is no word yet on Ford's status for the 2013 season, and whether or not he will be able to participate in OTAs come Spring. He has 44 receptions for 677 yards and three touchdowns in 24 games played over the course of two seasons.
Fantasy Impact: Ford should be ready by the start of the 2013 season barring any setbacks. Just what kind of role he will have remains to be seen, however. Rod Streater took on the Raiders' No. 3 spot on the depth chart behind Darrius Heyward-Bey and Denarius Moore, and did a nice job. Streater has 24 receptions for 329 yards and three touchdowns on the season, and is coming off a 96-yard performance against the Cleveland Browns.
