MIAMI -- The Raiders promoted long-snapper Nick Guess and cornerback Coye Francies from the practice squad Saturday and placed cornerback Ron Bartell and wide receiver Jacoby Ford on injured reserve.
Guess is now available to snap in the event Jon Condo is not cleared to long-snap against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday following a concussion.
Bartell, who is out with a fractured scapula, was placed on the ``short-term'' injured reserve list, a new designation this season. He could return as soon as Oct. 27. Ford, who had surgery on his left foot this week, is out for the season.
