Oakland Raiders quarterback Matt Leinart and wide receiver Jacoby Ford were both injured during the team's exhibition loss at the Arizona Cardinals on Friday. Leinart, a former Cardinal, was heavily booed by the crowd when he entered the game. The left-hander completed five of eight passes for 66 yards before leaving the game with a cut on his right index finger. NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk reported Saturday that X-rays were negative and he received stitches to close the wound. Leinart reportedly will be ready for the regular season opener against the San Diego Chargers. He is competing with Terrelle Pryor for the No. 2 spot behind Carson Palmer but Pryor has struggled. Ford left the game with a foot injury after catching a pass. Pro Football Talk reported that Ford was having the foot examined on Saturday. He missed eight regular-season games in 2011 because of injuries.
