Ford (knee) has been impressive so far this offseason, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.
Ford landed on injured reserve in early December last season due to an undisclosed knee injury. However, the second-year safety has been impressive so far in team activities after not taking a single defensive snap last season. With the competition wide open at safety entering training camp, there is a possibility Ford could see an expanded defensive role in 2018.
Ford (knee) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Ford has missed the last two games with the knee injury, and the issue will end up being a season-ending one. Ford had not played a single defensive snap his rookie season and was used primarily on special teams.
Ford went from a limited workload Thursday to a non-participant at Friday's practice, so he appears to be trending in the wrong direction. If the 23-year-old is unable to go look for Harlan Miller to step in as Tyrann Mathieu's primary backup at free safety.
