Very possible it could be a bad injector , there is a recall on the injectors .Google ford fuel injectors.

look at the new plug. just because its new does not mean its good. see if its black or if you cracked it when installing. could be an injector but i thought they throw more codes than just a single cylinder misfire. they screw with the o2 readings. before i go to far with injectors i would pull the plug since its new it should not break
