Getty Images File PhotoNagging ailment: Jacoby Ford re-injured his foot

Raiders wide receiver Jacoby Ford was scheduled to have surgery on his left foot Tuesday in North Carolina and will miss a number of games, head coach Dennis Allen said during his weekly news conference on Tuesday.

It’s uncertain whether Ford is out for the season.

“Basically, it’s the same injury he had last year. He re-injured it this season. … After visiting with the foot specialist in Carolina, everybody thought that given a little bit of time that he could come back from it,” Allen said.

Ford injured his foot in the Raiders’ second preseason game 
Aug. 17.

He missed eight games last season dealing with the same foot problem. He had 19 catches for 279 yards in his eight games last season, and he has returned four kickoffs for touchdowns in his two pro seasons.

“After giving it some time and re-evaluating, the medical people felt like this was probably the best thing for him.,” Allen said. “It didn’t respond like everybody was kinda hoping it would … he will be out a significant amount of time.”

Reece earns extension: Fullback Marcel Reece agreed to a contract extension with the Raiders. Financial terms were not disclosed, but Reece finally received the multi-year deal he has been seeking. He waited until the final organized team activity of the offseason program before signing his one-year, $540,000 exclusive rights free agent tender in June.
 
Run defense: The Raiders limited the Chargers to just 32 yards rushing Monday, but could be tested this weekend against the Dolphins. In 2011, Miami ran for 209 yards en route to a 34-14 beatdown of the Raiders and in 2010 the Dolphins tallied 186 yards on the ground as part of a 33-17 win.
