Goethel hadn't snapped in a game since high school and got only limited work before practices before being thrown into a game on national television.
"That falls on me," Allen said. "I've got to do a better job of making sure we're prepared for all those different situations. We practiced Travis snapping the ball but we could have probably done a better job of putting him in more live-type situations and giving him the opportunity to do it, kind of representing what he would do in a regular game."
Condo will have to be cleared medically before he can return for practice this week and Allen said the team will have a contingency plan in place if he can't play Sunday at Miami.
The Raiders also will have to come up with a plan going forward without Ford, who decided to have the operation after consulting with a specialist in North Carolina when the injury did not heal as quickly as hoped.
"It will be a significant amount of time," Allen said. "I don't know exactly what that number would be."
Ford hurt his foot on Aug. 17 in an exhibition game against Arizona. He missed six games with the same injury last season. Ford has 44 catches for 749 yards and three touchdowns in 24 games over two seasons. He has also scored two touchdowns rushing and returned four kicks for TDs in his career.
In another matter, Oakland finalized a multiyear contract extension with fullback Marcel Reece. Terms were not disclosed.
Thousands of family and friends turned out in Baltimore for the funeral of former Browns and Ravens owner Art Modell, including current and former players, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
Ray Lewis, Ray Rice, Joe Flacco, Haloti Ngata and Torrey Smith were among current Ravens players who attended the service at Baltimore Hebrew Congregation. Lewis, Baltimore's second pick in the 1996 draft after Modell moved the franchise, gave a eulogy filled with emotion. "Rest in peace, 'Pop Art,' " he said.
* Peyton Manning's winning debut as Broncos quarterback against the Steelers was NBC's highest-rated game on a Sunday night. The game drew a 16.5 national household rating and 26 share. That topped the 15.7/25 ratings of last year's Cowboys-Giants Week 17 finale.
* NFL Charities is awarding more than $1.5 million in grants for sports-related medical research at 15 organizations including Penn State, with nearly two-thirds of the money going to study concussion prevention and treatment. This year's grants include research on stem cells and nervous system injuries; MRI methods after concussions; and the effect of temperature on the severity of potential brain injuries.
* Injured Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison worked out and coach Mike Tomlin says there's a chance the four-time Pro Bowler could play in Sunday's home opener against the New York Jets. Harrison sat out the entire preseason while nursing a left knee injury. He underwent a minor procedure on the knee last month and didn't play in the season-opening loss at Denver.
* Denver signed former Pro Bowl center Dan Koppen, who spent nine seasons with New England, and waived backup center C.J. Davis. The Broncos re-signed backup quarterback Caleb Hanie, who was released in a procedural move Saturday to provide the Broncos with some financial flexibility. They also placed defensive tackle Ty Warren on injured reserve after he re-tore his right triceps in the opener.
* Dallas released tight end Colin Cochart, 10 days after the Cowboys claimed him off waivers from Cincinnati.
