Raiders Wide Receiver Ford Expects To Play Against Chargers

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Raiders wide receiver Jacoby Ford made it through a third straight practice without any setbacks and expects to play in Oakland’s regular-season finale against San Diego.

That would be a big boost to the Raiders, who need to beat the Chargers on Sunday to keep their playoff hopes alive. Oakland can get in either as the AFC West champion or as a wild card, though it would need help from other teams for that to happen.

Ford is averaging 15.3 yards a catch and has been one of the Raiders’ two deep threats along with rookie Denarius Moore. Ford also doubles as Oakland’s primary kick returner, but coach Hue Jackson will likely keep Ford limited to offense on Sunday.
