Raiders Make Roster Moves

Posted Sep 15, 2012

Raiders add Coye Francies, Nick Guess; place Ron Bartell, Jacoby Ford on IR prior to their Week 2 contest at Miami Sunday.

The Oakland Raiders have made four roster moves prior to their Week 2 contest at Miami Sunday. 

The team on Saturday promoted both cornerback Coye Francies and long-snapper Nick Guess from the team’s practice squad, placed wide receiver Jacoby Ford on season-ending reserve/injured, and placed cornerback Ron Bartell on the NFL’s new reserve/injured list that allows him to return later this year.

Francies (fran-SEES), claimed by the Raiders off waivers prior to the final preseason game and waived on Sept. 6, was added to the practice squad on Wednesday. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Francies played in eight games with the Cleveland Browns from 2009-10 and spent training camp with the Seattle Seahawks this season.

Guess was also signed to the Raiders’ practice squad on Wednesday. The 6-foot-2, 245-pound rookie was in training camp with the San Diego Chargers after signing this offseason as a non-drafted free agent out of Tennessee.

Ford, who injured his foot in a preseason contest at Arizona Aug. 17, underwent surgery on Tuesday. Bartell fractured his shoulder blade in the first half of Monday’s season-opener vs. San Diego.

Bartell under the new NFL rule is allowed to return to practice Oct. 27 and could play as early as Nov. 11 at Baltimore. Each team now is allowed to designate one player with a major injury, defined as a setback that keeps that player from practicing or playing for at least six weeks from the date it occurred, as eligible for reactivation later in the same season.
